ABI/Inform: To Find Scholarly
|ABI/Inform is the best index and database
of scholarly and professional literature on business and management topics.
It covers about 3,300 journals, trade periodicals, general business magazines,
and newspapers. The coverage for many dates back to 1971. An

The following suggestions and resources will help you get started using ABI/Inform in a powerful and efficient manner.
If you encounter trouble when doing ABI/Inform searches, review the Trail Guides again. For complex searches it may be easier to use the "Advanced" search option (click on the tab above the search statement dialog box) than the "Basic" search. If you still need help, ask for assistance from a reference librarian. Search assistance from the vendor (Bell and Howell) is available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time at 1-800-889-3358.
