First, you might need to narrow down your subject in order to make your searching more fruitful. Organizational Behavior is a very broad subject. Maybe take into consideration what area of organizational behavior you are referring to. This could help you find relevant information faster and searching easier.

That being said, the first thing you need to do is go to the Database by Subject Lib guide linked below. Once you are there, click on the "Business & Industry" tab or whichever tab best describes the class you need. While many databases may be useful in your research, this will help weed out the ones that will not contain the type of information you seek. Next, click on any of the databases linked and begin.

For example, in my search, I chose the database Academic Search Complete. In the search engine, I entered "organizational behavior." However, this came up with 23,917 results. To limit your choices, look to the left of the screen and choose a few of the "limiters" listed. It is always preferable to click "Full Text" to make sure the article is available. Unfortunately, this still leaves you with something like 20,000 results. Try other limiters such as publication date, peer reviewed, and/or article type. Now, since your topic is very broad, it might be a good idea to look at the subject theasuras section and limit based on the type of class you are using the article for.

A how-to link for EBSCO is located at the bottom along with the other how-to for databases if you have further questions.
