New resource trial: ABI-INFORM Global

Trial access to the business database ABI-INFORM Global has been established in eSearch > eResource trials > Active trials. Access is direct on-campus; with no off-campus access available for the duration of the trial. The resource is described as follows:

Search nearly 1800 worldwide business periodicals for in-depth coverage of business and economic conditions, management techniques, theory, and practice of business, advertising, marketing, economics, human resources, finance, taxation, computers, and more.

ABI-INFORM Global can be searched remotely from eSearch, but this functionality has not been enabled during the trial. Outbound OpenURL integration with SFX has been switched on for those resources not held in full-text in ABI-INFORM Global. Click on the Find a copy link in the results list to bring up a full record (see illustration below).

The trial lasts until 2 March, and all feedback should be sent to Andrew Kernot.
