Articles Search, introduced last March, is proving more and more popular as a way of finding the journal articles you need.
Articles Search lets you search for articles in many journals and databases in a single search, and then go straight to the full-text if the Library subscribes to the resource. Log in to get the best access to these resources. More information about Articles Search is available here.
Almost 13,000 searches were made using Articles Search during November. The most popular search terms were international marketing, Kurdistan and globalization.
