Access to Gartner Restored

Access to Gartner has been restored.  Gartner is a leading information technology research provider. Gartner offers market statistics and forecasts for hardware, software, communications, IT services and semiconductors. Additionally there are reports and case studies by IT topic and by industry.  Gartner is well know for their incisive analysis of key players positioning found in Magic Quadrants as well as their comprehensive and forwarding looking Marketscope reports.  Anyone serious about emerging trends in IT will find this an invaluable source.    This resource comes courtesy of UNIT with special thanks to Robin Allen for making it available.


ValueLine Historical Reports Added

Finding historical company betas has just gotten MUCH easier.   I’m pleased to report that we have ungraded to the Value Line plus edition.  The  plus edition includes historical company reports going back to 1997!  Falvey Memorial Library still has the microfiche that include company, industry and news going back to 1980.
