Now available: Online access to ‘Dayton Business Journal’

By Joan Plungis

For local business news, the Dayton Business Journal is an essential source. The University Libraries are pleased to announce a new, online, campus-wide subscription to the DBJ.

The subscription allows up to 10 simultaneous users and is based on campus IP address, so no username and password are necessary if accessed from campus. Current UD students, faculty, and staff can access DBJ premium content from off campus by going through the Libraries website and authenticating with their credentials. On the Libraries website, look for Dayton Business Journal under either the Journals tab or the Databases tab.

The online subscription provides access to breaking business news, updated throughout the day, as well as the top stories and features from the week’s print edition. It also includes the popular Book of Lists, a section of which is updated each week. The print edition of the DBJ will continue to be available in the periodicals reading area on the second floor of Roesch Library.

The Dayton Business Journal is important reading for undergraduate and graduate business students, Master of Public Administration students, and those working on projects with a local focus. While electronic access has been frequently requested over the years, only recently did it become possible to obtain an online institutional subscription based on IP address.

"This will be a great resource for our MBA students," said Scott MacDonald, director of the MBA program. “They will have ready access to local business news and information that is relevant to their learning and research.” 

Bob Bowman, who teaches the MBA 799 capstone class, said the subscription will be of particular value for his students.

“In MBA 799, our students are put into a consulting role with local clients,” Bowman said. “The DBJ will certainly add to our students’ knowledge of the local business environment, enabling them to become more effective leaders. Thanks for adding this resource to our business tools.”
