When you are writing an academic paper, you usually want to stick to scholarly sources.  When you are performing business law-related research, however, you may need to look to popular materials for the answers.  Business information can come from all types of sources.  When you need up-to-date information on things like stock prices, contemporary news stories, or the latest business regulations, popular materials may be your best bet for finding the answer.

The resources on this page will help you find both scholarly and popular materials. 


You can perform keyword searches of these databases to find business information.  Note that these databases are restricted to persons affiliated with Drexel University and that you may have to provide your Drexel id and password to access.  For help searching and navigating the individual databases, please contact a reference librarian.

Individual Publications

You may want to search individual publication titles to locate articles.  The resources below may be included in some or all of the databases mentioned above, but you may want to narrow your search to a specific title if you have a good idea of what you are looking for.
