Company Research

This Library Guide will help you research company information from current news to financial statistics.

Current Information

Once all the background information has been located and compiled, start here for current books and articles written about the company.

When searching for up to the minute or historical information on a company, there are a  variety of options. Library databases can be very helpful in searching journal articles, newspapers, and magazines. There are also a number of outside sources to search on the internet.  A few tips on current news research are included below.

When searching for articles regarding a smaller business it is a good idea to search the newspaper that is closest to the company's headquarters. I.e. for Starbucks, search The Seatte Times. If unsure of which newspaper is closest to the company headquarters, refer to a company directory. 

Make sure that the source used is reputable, and the information correct. Using the links provided here is a great way to ensure that the information is not false.
