Resource Guide for Non-Profits: Library Databases

How to conduct research on "Non-Profits" as well as "Not-for-profits"

Article oriented Databases

If you are researching a national organization, then you may want to look for articles published in magazines that clearly have a nationwide circulation, and a national focus.  In order to do a thorough search, you can conduct a simultaneous search of 3 magazine  & journal oriented databases through Hatfield Library’s subscription to the family of "Ebsco" databases.  

To conduct a joint search, first you need to log into one of the 3 participating databases from the Ebsco group, then move to top of the white section, and click on the blue text called "Choose Databases".  Now you mark which databases you want, then click on the blue "continue" button at the top/bottom of the database selection screen, in order to be able to work with that combination of databases with a unified search strategy.

3 databases from the EBSCO company:

 

2 databases from other companies:

  • Business Insights: Global  – mixture of trade magazines, professional magazines & academic business publications 
  • ABI Inform Collection  – mixture of trade magazines, professional magazines & academic business publications
