Answer

I would recommend starting with the Library’s Subject Guide for Supply Chain Management: http://library.uhd.edu/scm

Two of the best resources for business articles are Business Source Complete and ABI/Inform.  They are located in the box in the middle of the page.  Both of these databases provide articles from reputable newspapers, trade publications, and journals.

There are two different approaches you can try.  The first, search a specific company and add in the country and disaster.  For example: Japan OR Japanese earthquake AND Honda AND supply chain

The second way you can try to search is to take some of the words out or use different wording. This will broaden your search and give you more results. That might look something like this: Honda AND supply chain AND earthquake.   Or Japan AND earthquake AND supply chain.  I would try the narrower search first because you’ll get results closer to what you are looking for. But if you are not finding information on your company, try the broader search.  Also, you can change the words to get different results.  So instead of “supply chain”, try “supply” or “logistics”.  Instead of “earthquake”, try “natural disaster”.
