Bloomberg Businessweek Archive

Logo for Bloomberg Businessweek from wikimedia commonsThe library has added the Bloomberg Businessweek Archive to the collection. Researchers no longer have to rely on inconvenient microfilm for historical research in this quintessential source of business journalism.

The acquisition also rounds out our historical business collections. Last year we added the Forbes & Fortune Archives and backfiles of company annual reports and SEC filings from Mergent.

The archives cover the first issue that hit the stands as simply Businessweek in 1929, just in time for the stock market crash, heralding the Great Depression, and ends in 2000.  To search more recent issues from 2000 to present, use Business Source Premier or link to full text from the Journal Finder. Whatever the decade, Bloomberg Businessweek is ever relevant, covering the cultural and social issues impacting business. Ironically, the cover story of the inaugural issue was titled “Taking the Fear out of Flying;” the final issue of 2019 offered an in-depth look at Boeing and “Where the 737 Went Off Course.”

It’s fair to say we can look forward to a piece on how the COVID-19 is impacting the airline business soon. (Update: Bloomberg Businessweek published “Global Airlines Face the Worst Demand Decline on Record” March 12.)
