Electronic resources, or databases, are covered by licenses limiting access to academic use by UCLA faculty, staff, and current UCLA students, with some limited to Anderson School use only. Please also read the UCLA Library policy on Appropriate Use of Licensed Electronic Resources. Violations of the University's contractual agreements with electronic resources vendors can and do result in the suspension of access to those resources for the entire UCLA community.
Databases are available for remote access by user groups as noted: Anderson, UCLA or UC. Additional conditions of use may apply. Databases require cookies enabled. With almost no exceptions, there are no passwords for the databases -- access both on campus and off campus is controlled by IP address authentication. When a database does require a password or an individual account, that information is provided in the database description shown below -- please read those descriptions.
Some business-related information needs require other article databases or subject-specific databases or e-resources (and more, as shown in UCLA Library research LibGuides), licensed by the UCLA Library. If you cannot identify a useful database, please consult a business reference librarian.
- Database Alerts: for tracking an industry, a company, a topic, a favorite journal, and more. Use this guide to learn which databases have this feature.
- Citation Linker: Use to locate full-text articles and other documents digitally when you already have a citation in hand (from a bibliography, footnote, or other source). When you use the Citation Linker form, you must fill in the journal title and date of the article, at a minimum.
