Hi. Less of a question and more of a please help...Im taking MBA525 and have a review of literature due at the end of the semester. I am having issues with picking a topic because the article search engines are so non-user friendly...or maybe I am just not too tech savvy. I have a topic, I just haven't found enough articles.
I watched the tutorial on searching articles and am still having issues. I was hoping to do my review on something related to communication in business...I found a few articles, but as I have never done a ROL, I don't know how many I need and I have already used them for citations in discussion posts and I don't know if that will matter. I am sure that 2 articles is not enough. Can you help? I am open to switching to a less specific topic if it will help me find literature to write the paper from.

Hello Jessica,

Thank you for contacting us at LibAnswers. 

I have no idea which databases you used or where you got stuck. There are several databases you can use. Follow the step by step instruction below.

Journal Articles - EBSCO Database

Go to our library web page at

Click on Find an Article, under “Quick Links.”

Select EBSCO; this will take you to the EBSCO login page.

To login enter your SLU username [first name.last name] and the password that you use for your SLU email.

Select All EBSCOhost Reference Databases.

Check the boxes next to Academic Search Complete and any other databases that seem relevant to your topic.

Click on the Continue button at the bottom of the page.

Click on Advanced Search under the search box.

Scroll down the page and check the boxes Full-Text and Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed , if desired.

Enter your search terms, separating phrases by AND, OR, or NOT and then click on “Search.”

Click on the “PDF Full Text” or “HTML” icons to view the article.

If you don't get the results you're looking for, or too many, try other relevant terms.

You can aslo use ProQuest and Business Source Complete. Please call me at the reference desk toll free 1 800 359.5945 so I can walk you through the process. We close at 5:00pm and the reference desk will be staffed from  9:00am
