Tip: Remember to try a few searches using different search words, to vary your results.
These library-subscribed databases are relatively simple to search, but you should still try alternative subject terms if your intial searching is not successful. For example if you get no results for coffee shops, try searching cafes or restaurants or foodservice or food services or beverage bars, nonalcoholic or snack bars or cafeterias or donught and muffin shops or coffee houses.
