Online Class: Prospecting for Business Information (prepared by SIBL Librarians and Thirteen/WNET New York.)
Searching for Company Information
The amount of information available both in print and electronic format has grown exponentially over the last decade. With the widespread popularity of online marketing in this new Internet economy, more and more company information is becoming available. At an unprecedented rate, companies of all flavors and sizes are putting up their own websites and are being included in web-based directories and virtual lists.
Regardless of the abundance of data, there is still no one definitive way for doing business research on a particular company. As ever before, the approach that you take and the resources that you use will depend on the type and amount of information that you have to start with, as well as the type and amount of information that you wish to end up with.
The Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL) can assist you in navigating through this information efficiently and effectively.
