Hello Jacqueline,Interesting topic!
When you have an ebook in your result list, there should be an ACCESS this title online link. When you click on that link, the full record should come up. On that page (probably on the left) will be links to the full text and/or to download.
Subject headings I found that might be helpful to your searching are Academic libraries--forecasting, Public libraries--forecasting; library science--forecasting or libraries--forecasting and economic development. There may be overlapping in the results you get.
Did you try the database Library, Information Science and Technology Abstracts? It is one of our subscription databases. You might want to look at Business Source Complete (for the economic development) and the results you get in Academic Search.
