FYS 044 - Daring to Dream Resource Guide

This guide walks you through three resources that you will find helpful in starting your research assignments.  Please do contact me ( once you have established your research question as there are many additional resources available for supporting more specific questions. 

Information Resource List

Gale e-books provide a good start point for starting to research your company's history and the key players within that company.  This information will help you identify the facts, names, forces and other factors that will begin to shape your research question.  


Ebsco Business Source Premier is the second step in our research process.  Ebsco is predominately composed of journal articles and reports.  These materials let you expand upon a specific area of interest, while still providing opportunity to see how your topic fits into the bigger picture. 


Nexus Uni is the final database in our series.  This database focuses on newspaper article, financial filing and legal materials.  You should have something specific in mind when you are searching this database.  Pay attention to the origins of the source as different sources will have different perspectives on the same event, which is of value in identifying different biases/perspectives.
