I have used the FT archive in the past and found it very useful. I am more interested in the recent past - say the last 10 years.

It is useful for PhD, MSc, MBA and undergraduate students. For example, there are many good articles on supply chain management and logistics in the FT.

I would certainly support keeping it. I expect it is not cheap, so we would then need to promote its use.

I have previously used this system in the British Library and in other universities. It is brilliant and I hope the university will sign up for it permanently.

The system is easy to use, and full of extremely valuable information for a broad variety of undergraduates, research students and staff. The extensive date range makes this an excellent source for the history of business and commerce and would be a particularly important resource for the Management School, which is seeing substantial increases in student intake. I hope the university will subscribe permanently.

Excellent database, even for staff/students who are not based in ULMS but whose research utilises data from the fields of finance and economics
