The Economics subject guide gives you access to useful library databases and trusted Web resources, relevant for researching many topics in economics or finance


Working papers & preprints (see above) are useful for current awareness, but news sources & blogs are even more up to date. Two important sources of quality news in Economics & Finance that the Library subscribes to are:


The Library subscribes to Factiva, a Dow Jones product, which offers extensive business & financial news.
