The How to Find Company and Industry Information LibGuide should be the first place you visit on the Bellevue University Library website if you are looking for industry news or information on companies and their executives. This LibGuide offers tutorials on using the databases Business Source Complete, D&B Hoover’s Business Browser, Nexis Uni, Gale Business Insights Global, and Small Business Reference Center, and makes it easy to determine which databases will be best suited for the type of information you are looking for.
For example, if you need to be able to compare companies at a glance, one against another, Gale Business Insights Global will best do what you need, and this LibGuide will show you how it is done. This LibGuide also offers a curated list of books the library owns on the history of various companies and industries, as well as instructions on how to search a directory of company histories and how to locate useful industry data, both via our databases and via freely available services on the web. Go to http://libguides.bellevue.edu/companyInfo to check it out!
