For sources on time management, head to the Business LibGuide. Click on the gold Articles tab, and click on the first database listed, ABI/Inform Complete by ProQuest. Search "time management".

Under the search box, click the boxes for full text and scholarly sources. When the results load, use the left side toolbar to limit them to the last 5 years. You will get lots of good results, such as

  • Wu, D., & Passerini, K. (2013). Uncovering knowledge-based time management practices. International Journal of Managing Projects in Business, 6(2), 332-348. doi:

If the topic is too broad, you can add additional search terms, for example "time management" AND undergraduates

  • Hoops, L. D., Yu, S. L., Burridge, A. B., & Wolters, C. A. (2015). Impact of a student success course on undergraduate academic outcomes. Journal of College Reading and Learning, 45(2), 123-146.

Or "time management" AND strategies

  • Cleary, Michelle,R.N., PhD., & Horsfall, J., PhD. (2011). Developing students' time management skills in clinical settings: Practical considerations for busy nursing staff. The Journal of Continuing Education in Nursing, 42(6), 248-9. doi:
