Library resources include several options for finding industry information. Although you will find industry reports in the big business databases, ABI/Inform Collection and Business Source Premier, two specialty databases include:
Use IBISWorld to locate industry reports from more than 700 NAICS-classified industries. These in-depth reports include key statistics, market segmentation, industry outlook, key competitors, and more. The database also includes a more limited collection of global reports.
Standard & Poor's NetAdvantage provides access to company, stock reports, and industry surveys. The database is best used by browsing, starting with the tabs located at the top of the homepage. Broad categories lead to specific articles, reports, and statistics. Industry Surveys include overviews at both the industry and sector levels.
If you have questions about these or any other business resource, contact Regina Beard, business librarian, firstname.lastname@example.org.
