Resources for Trades

Online Database


  • ProQuest offers a wide array of trade journals
  • Access these by entering ProQuest through the Student Library link in your Student Portal. Once you’ve navigated to the ProQuest homepage, click on the the advanced search link above the search box
  • Scroll down the page until you see the source type field. In this area, scroll down and select “trade journals”. Now scroll back up to the top of your page and type in your search terms to the search box as you would any other search engine. This will limit your search to materials that are found in trade journals and make it more likely that you will retrieve materials relevant to your needs.
