  • The best method is to follow links from the library website.
  • When logged in and a browser window is not closed, access should continue from resource to resource.
  • Remember to close your browser when done.

Welcome MBA Students

Kelvin Smith Library and the Case Libraries all have resources that you can use online and in the libraries. The Case Catalog is available 24/7  and does not require authentication to locate an item. It also has convenient quick-links to the Ejournals Portal and the Research Database list. Authenetication for those proprietary resources does require prior network authentication. The column on the left "VPN Reminder" explains what is needed for seamless, efficient, effective acess.

Kelvin Smith Library subscribes to many online resources such as industry analysis, articles from top newspapers and journals, market research reports and statistical data. All of these will play a role in providing the information you need to analyze a company or industry, find market trends and consumer expectations, identify competitors and more. From the Research Database list, open the Business folder on the left sidebar, for the best resources for your work.


The KSL homepage also has many feature to help you:

1) ASKSL on the left–live chat window to talk with a reearch librarian, or, enter your question if it's not active, and get a reply when staff signs back on.

2) Collaboration Rooms–reserve one, for group work!

3) the Green "connected" dot, lower left corner, to make surse you can use all of the licensed proprietary  resources.
