Tips for Access to Library Resources

  • The simplest way to initiate library research is to open up your favorite browser and go directly to library.villanova.edu.  MyNova is great for University information, tools and  email but does not enhance the online library experience.
  • Most library subscription databases are authenticated with a single sign on.  Once you login to a single database with your Villanova email user name and password you will have access to all others. Some databases such a Mintel, MRI, or ESRI Business Analyst online require additional registration credentials.
  • You will not be able to access known library resources by simply Googling them. 
  • Firewalls at workplaces are a common impediment to accessing library databases.  To avoid this problem find an open network connection elsewhere.  Few employers IT departments are willing to adjust firewalls.

  Choosing the Right Database

Knowing which database to use is half the battle.  Asking professors, classmates and librarians for recommendations is often helpful. 

When asking for suggestions about what sources to use, remember to provide a concise description of what information you think you need, describing how you would like to use the information. 

Library database descriptions try to convey database content, but sometimes you will need to log on to the database to get a better idea of what is offered and use database help tools.

The groupings of resources in the side bar of this page aids in finding databases that offer company profiles, industry and market research reports and more. 

Business researchers often engage in interdiscipinary or multidisciplinary inquiry.  Use our many subject guides to learn about our non-business subscriptions.
