Databases/Reference Tip of the Week

Have you ever wondered what databases are applicable to your major area of study? Or even to you minor or concentration? And do you want to learn some quick reference tips? Rohrbach Library can help you learn all of these things with two new bulletin boards in the Information Commons.

The “Featured Databases” bulletin board, which is located on the wall behind the printers in the Information Commons area, features two databases for a specific major each week. This week’s board is geared toward business majors. The two databases are ABI/Inform Complete and Compustat.

ABI/Inform Complete allows you to search 1,000 worldwide business periodicals. You can also get information on more than 60,000 businesses. Compustat provides comprehensive financial, statistical and market data for more than 21,000 U.S. and Canadian companies. This database is only accessible on campus. Click here for more information on ABI/Inform Complete, and click here for more information on Compustat.

The “Reference Tip of the Week” board is located to the side of the Information Commons printer. This week’s focus is Style Guides.  Get a quick overview of MLA, APA, Chicago and Turabian styles. For more information on the style guides, click here.

These bulletin boards are great, easily accessible resources for students, faculty and staff; they are quick references that anyone can check out while passing through the Information Commons. And if you don’t make it to the library often, don’t worry! Each time the bulletin boards are changed, a blog will be posted.

      Thanks, Krista! It’s a great, fast way to let students know what’s available for their research, and how to go about doing their research.
