It can be challenging to gather background information about specific brand name products, trends, or phenomenon. Most databases do not properly index content by product or brand name, or fail to capture trends and phenomenon (and describe them using Subject Headings) in a timely manner.
Search by keyword in Omni for your topic (product, trend, or phenomenon). Remember to put quotation marks around your brand name product (e.g. "beanie babies") for more specific results.
Very recent phenomenon, such as fidget spinners, may be covered in current news publications, online, & broadcast media, while older trends or products, such as Beanie Babies, will have a longer paper trail of documentation including scholarly journals and books.
