You can explore the magic of these selected collections:
Business Source Complete
Taylor & Francis eJournals
Academic Search Premier
Culinary Arts Collection

From time to time, a professor, here and there, may recommend a favorite journal or magazine, suggesting a title that is perfect for your research report! With over 150 discrete collections within our online library, how will you ever find it?

Try it, and see for yourself.
Example: Take a leisurely walk through the issues of Bon Appetit.
