Business Source Complete (BSC) (Database Instruction)

Business Source Complete is a comprehensive database containing thousands of full-text journals and magazines, e-books, case studies, industry reports, market research reports, company profiles, SWOT analyses, and more.

Full Text Finder

A  Full Text Finder option in a record indicates that the full text of the article is not immediately available in the current database, only the citation, but the full text may be found in another database through the link.  This link appears when another of our Electronic Databases contains the full text of the article and provides an easy way to access it.






Click on the Full Text Finder link shown below a record.  You may or may not see a message about cookies.  If you do, simply click on the link at the top of the page that says 'open the page in a new window' to go to the online resource.





In this example we are taken out to the ScienceDirect page, and to the content that we subscribe to.  You will often see the HTML article, and a PDF link allowing you to download the article.  Permalinks, citation links, and other options are also on the page.







This is an example of the full PDF article access.  When you are finished viewing you can close the windows, as Full Text Finder opens links in new windows  Return to your original search window to continue working in Ebscohost.
