Locating The Economist
The Canadian Periodical Index has been a core reference tool for accessing Canadian scholarly and popular periodicals since 1928. The electronic version available on the Articles and Databases menu is published by Gale Research and covers the years 1996, 1997 and 1998. About one third of the articles are full text.
There are two databases that index the Economist in the UML electronic resources: CPI.Q (Canadian Periodical Index) and ProQuest ABI Inform. You can quickly search using the respective Search box. If you want to keep abreast of what is being covered in the weekly Economist, you can set an e-mail alert based on the topic or region that is interest to you.
