How to Find Company Info & Reports

You might get an assignment that requires you to get information about a company or company reports.  You may be asked to get info from a library resource instead of just using the internet.  The library is here to help!

To find info  or reports for a specific company or business:

  1. Go to the library homepage at www.esc.edu/library
  2. Select Subjects from the Find menu
  3. Select Business, Management & Economics from the list.
  4. At the Business, Management & Economics Subject Guide, you will see many tabs.  You are automatically in the Journal Articles tab and this is where you want to start.  You have some options of resources to use on this guide:

Business Source Complete:

This is an EBSCOHost database so if you have used EBSCO for other research, it should be a familiar format for you. This database also has many scholarly and non-scholarly articles available in the subject area of business and economics.  For info on how to find specific company information, you can view this video from Binghamton University: http://youtu.be/i02AxXSDWLY?t=39s
