Databases are collections of articles from various sources, including newspapers, magazines, trade journals, and peer-reviewed journals. When you have a topic but no particular publication in mind, it is often easier to search a database.
The New York Times is an American newspaper based in New York City with worldwide influence and readership.
These are some well-known national business magazines.
Trade journals are magazine-like publications designed for a particular industry. They can be searched individually if you prefer or you will find many in InfoTrac Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure eCollection.
Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational materials that are in the public domain or that have been introduced with an open license. An open license means that anyone can use, copy and re-share the materials. OER can be in the form of full courses, course materials, textbooks, curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, tests, assignments, videos or audio (UNESCO)
Valencia College libraries also have subscriptions to a multitude of resources than can be embedded in Canvas to also supplement your course materials. Even though these resources are not OER, they can be used together with OER to reduce the cost for students.
