Then, on the home search page, add more databases to expand your search. This will enable you to search a broader range of resources (that are still business-related.)

Here's how:

Step 1: Look for the "Choose Databases By Subject" link above the search box

Step 2: Checkmark "Business / Economics Databases" from the menu that pops up, then click "OK"

Step 3: Ready to search! Notice how the area above the search box confirms that you will be searching Business / Economics databases.

From here you can enter terms into the search box, or click "Advanced Search" for more options.
