Data on Private and Public Businesses for Job Seekers, Business Owners, and the Academic Community
Conducting research on businesses has its challenges. Gathering information from multiple sources can be labor-intensive, and access may be limited for the everyday information seeker. Information on private companies can be particularly elusive. While a basic Internet search can return results, they may raise questions on accuracy, completeness and most importantly, relevance, for the need at hand.
Mergent has partnered with Dun & Bradstreet to offer Mergent IntellectTM to public and academic libraries. Mergent Intellect is a flexible web-based solution that offers library patrons access to a wide range of business data - private and public companies, U.S. and international based, industry news, facts and figures, executive contact information, industry profiles, and much more.
