Q: I tried to use Business Index ASAP and noticed that it has been superceded by Business and Company Resource Centre. I tried to search it for journal articles but didn’t find any. Can you help?
A: The default search in Business and Company Resource Center is a “Company Search.” To locate journal articles you must click on Articles under “Additional Search Options.”
Q: I was looking for financial information about several companies and wasn’t sure where to look. Do you have any suggestions?
A: There are a couple of different ways to find financial statements for companies. To locate information about Canadian publicly traded companies try using SEDAR http://www.sedar.com, a site jointly operated by the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) and the Canadian Depository for Securities (CDS). A link to this site is provided in the Digital Reference Centre under Internet Searching: Web sites by subject. In addition, Business and Company Resource Center also contains financial information about Canadian and International companies. It is possible to search by company name, industry code, or ticker symbol.
Changes to sociological abstracts
Submitted by Elaine Magusin of the AU Library
Sociological Abstracts will no longer be available through the EBSCO platform as of January 2004. AU Library will continue to subscribe to the database but it will be available through Cambridge Scientific Abstracts instead. Currently there are links to both versions on our Web site.
