Begin your search at Gale Virtual Reference Library, Credo Reference, or Encyclopedia Britannica.

Search using terms like:

  • Mayo and "Hawthorne Studies"
  • Mayo and "Hawthorne Experiment"
  • Mayo and "Hawthorne Research"
  • Mayo and "Hawthorne Effect" or
  • Mayo and "Hawthorne Project"

Note: You will get better results if you enclose terms of two or more words with quotations marks - this instructs the database to search only for articles with the words only side-by-side.

After finding reference information, now you'll want to launch a deeper investigation of the topic.  A few databases that may contain helpful articles on this topic are Business Source Complete, or Business via ProQuest. Again, use search terms similar to those bullet pointed above.

Also, try using our eBooks via EBSCO and Safari Business eBooks databases for eBooks!
