To access databases for articles and company information, on the library homepage, click on FIND NOW under Find Articles. The following databases will be useful for your research:
- ABI/INFORM Global
- Business Source Elite
- Hoover's Company Reports
Search in both ABI/INFORM and Business Source Elite for journal and news articles on Procter & Gamble OR Proctor & Gamble. I’ve seen both spellings used.
ABI/INFORM allows you to narrow your search results to “newspapers”. After you perform a search, see right hand side under “source type”, select Newspapers.
In Business Source Elite, you can access a company report by going to the top of the page and clicking on Company Profiles. HINT: In the Browse box, type in either Procter or Gamble and select “match any word”. The result will be The Procter & Gamble Company. (Searching alphabetically for Procter & Gamble didn’t work because of the “The”). This 40 pg. report has a company overview, history, and more.
Hoover's provides similar company profiles and information.
