Searching Factiva To connect on or off campus
Factiva is an enormous international news and company data database. A huge variety of news sources in 23 languages, including Cyrillic script, Chinese simplified and traditional scripts and Arabic are included.
Factiva also contains company data:
Factiva does not work like Google! Casually typing a few words into the search box, a description of what you want, will retrieve too many articles to be helpful. Using the indexes is not intuitive and you will probably need advice.
You are strongly recommended to look at the exercise on using this database in our Virtual Learning Course "A guide to using business and economics databases", which covers most of the business databases.
