Articles from newspapers and business periodicals.

Although we take many of these in the library they do not usually have
anyindexes. We compile our own index of items which have appeared in
some of these publications that contain statistics and other information
useful for market research. Please ask the staff at our Enquiry Desk for a
list of recent articles relevant to the particular product or service and
country in which you are interested.

We also provide newspaper and magazine databases which may contain
relevant articles. BusinessUK and OneSource databases can be used
only in the Library but NewsUK can be accessed remotely by library
members.
