Brilliant ideas anyone?

WRT: the article posted on the ‘Art of Pitch’ section of Module 2: How to pitch a brilliant idea.. I have just spent the las 30 minutes trying to access it with no result. I have full access to UCB Library via this link:

https://rsvpn.ubc.ca/http/www.library.ubc.ca/

Made many queries using Academic Search Complete… always get “no result found’… what’s my problem?

Thanks,

Nancy

1. I used the link to go to the login page. Logged in.

2. Searched on journals for Harvard Business Review.

3. Clicked the Business Source Complete link.

4. Searched for title of the article.

5. Got the citation and a PDF link

Hi all,

I’ve fixed the link. You need to be logged into UBC’s VPN to access this full-text article.

Nice. Thanks but it doesn’t work for me. I can log into the database using my user id / password, however, this login is different and requires some other login and password. I will try following David’s search tips using my route… argh! 😉

Hi Nancy,

Here are a few things I have found doing this on my mac.

Firefox never works, when I use Safari it magically just works.

The link worked for me. You might try using the proxy server, there may be a firewall issue (this is the case at most schools)
