Small Business: Find Articles

Guide to research and library resources related to Small Business

Find Articles

The Standard and Poor's database is a useful database for researching companies and industries.  It includes Industry profiles, comparison of companies in key sectors, and company data including stock performance. It is limited to publicly traded companies.  The Business Insights Global database also provides company profiles, and includes some information for privately held companies.

Find Articles with Google Scholar

Before searching, be sure to set PCC as your library in your browser by:

  1. Visiting the link to set "Library Links" settings for Google Scholar
  2. using the search box to search for "Portland Community College",
  3. checking the check box that appears underneath the search to select “Portland Community College – Find it @ PCC”, 
  4. and then selecting the Save button.

This will ensure that when you search Google Scholar in your browser, you will see Find It @ PCC links to full text if we have the article (Google Scholar sometimes also provides links to other free sources for full text).

You can learn more about setting Google Scholar preferences on the PCC Library Website

Small Business Journals

Scholarly and trade journals for Small Business.  Browse issues in full text.  Databases provide generated citations for articles, the ability to email articles, and other tools.  These titles also are available on the web, but may require subscription access.

If you don't find full-text

If the article you have found in a library database doesn't have the full text right there, click on the "Find It" button to see if the article is available in full-text in another database.

If we do have it, it will take you to a page that provides you a link to the database in which the article is available (click on that link to access the article).

If we do not have it, you will see a link to request the article through Interlibrary Loan, which takes approximately three days (though it may take more).

The "Find It" button will look like this. Button that says "Find It" as it is seen on PCC Library databases
