Economics Research

This guide lists sources of information for researching economics.


Some important notes when searching the UMCP Libraries Catalog:

  • The catalog identifies what the Libraries own, where the journals, books, videos, magazines, newspapers, encyclopedias, government publications, etc. are located, and their availability.
  • The catalog DOES NOT list journal articles. See the Indexes and Abstracts section of this guide to identify databases that list or provide full text journal articles.
  • Keyword searches will locate words and terms when they appear in the title, subject headings or notes of a record.
  • You can limit your search by adding additional terms or otherwise narrowing the scope of your search.
