The Article Isn't Available in the Library! What Do I Do?

What happens if you find an article and it isn't full-text?  It doesn't stop there!

The Library can help you find the article.  You can search the catalog to see if we have the journal.  If we don't have the journal, you can ask for Interlibrary Loan - we'll ask another library to scan the article and send it to us.  It's a free service for Ringling students!

And if you're really not sure what to do, you can always ask us for help!

Uncovering Information

Starting a search can be challenging, however, if you create a strategic plan before you begin your search for informaiton sources becomes simpler.

One of the best places to look is within trade organizations because they support industries. Trade associations and organizations provide fundamental and expert advice on where the industry is headed, statistical data, and expert advice about products, services, and trends. 

Much of this information is free and available online. "If it is a members-only site, see if the association has been quoted in business trade publications, newspapers or magazines.  You can do this by using their name as a search term in the databases listed under the "Business Articles" tab.
