Thank you for contacting the Ask Today librarians. I'm sure I can help you get started with your search. The library has a number of databases that should help you with your information.

On the home page of the online library, click on Find Articles and More in the top left.

The links are alphabetical by the name of the database. Find the one called "ProQuest Central".

Below the search box you will see two choices: Full Text and Peer Reviewed. Make sure that you check both of them.

The first search I would try is "smoking bans". There seemed to be a good number of choices, including articles that discussed economic impact of bans.

To review an article in detail, click on the article title. This next screen will give you all the relevant details about the specific article, including the ability to view and save the full text.

Note also that right below the search box, you will see a list of suggested similar searches. If you see one that better describes your needs, you can click it and bring the changed article list up.

I hope this will help you get started. Please feel free to follow up if you need more information or have more questions.
