Company Information: Home

Start here for numerous resources covering companies and tips for finding company information.

Private Companies: Finding Info

While company information can be found in a host of resources, published information about private companies generally is sparse.  Company websites, along with the following research databases and Internet sources, are probably your best options for private company information. 

Lexis-Nexis Academic: Search for news articles and company overviews.

Regional Business News:  Search for news articles about your company.

Market Share Reporter:  This database is a grab bag of whatever has been published recently about market share for products


This guide will help you find and manage information about companies.  Use it to locate articles, financial information, investment advisories, company reports, company histories, and more. 

The Research Databases tab (top of this screen) has a drop-down menu of databases with a fairly in-depth explanation of how to use each, in case you're leery about just jumping in and pushing buttons.
