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, may be the only accessible sources of information for some companies:
The Market Share Reporter, now available in digital format, is a grab bag of whatever has been published recently about market share for products. Click here to see an excerpt. (Latest hardcopy volume 2011) is at the Research and Information Desk.
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.
