Using Magazines and Trade Journals
These can be excellent sources to learn about economy-wide and industry-specific issues, trends, and statistics.
They may prove useful in selecting, refining or deepening your understanding of a topic.
Hints for Searching Databases
Use specialized resources from Gelman, not just Google.
Make sure to use Subject Headings when searching.
You can find lists of Subject Headings in the Thesaurus of the database.
You'll find that using the terms set out by the database will refine your results list.
Another hint would be to start a page or research log detailing your steps. You'll often find that one good search term will be successful across multiple databases.
Using News Sources
News sources are great for searching existing companies and products.
These are best used when you know what you're looking for.
