Bureau Van Dijk Trial

In an effort to address the ongoing globalization of the curriculum, the Bartley Business Information Team is pleased to bring you an extended trial of a compliment of Bureau Van Dijk databases.  BVD is a leader in global company information.  You and your students can test drive the following databases:  Bankscope (private and public  banks & financial institutions), ISIS (worldwide insurance companies) ORBIS (worldwide private companies) OSIRIS (worldwide quoted companies) and ZEPHYR (a five year archive of M&A, IPO and private equity deals both rumored and completed). 


BVD may be accessed either on or off campus from the Business Databases pages and Finance, Marketing, Management and Accounting Subject pages.  Once you have authenticated with your LDAP user name and password,  select Login to BVD products by using the drop down menu to choose a database.  You will be prompted for case sensitive user name and password: linda.hauck.


This trial compliments and in some cases goes well beyond our offerings included in MarketInsight (S&P), MarketLine(Datamonitor), Lexis-Nexis (Company Dossier), North American Financial Institutions Directory (Print Reference Collection) and SDC (M&A).   


For questions or comments contact or 494-685-6759.  The trial runs through the end of the Spring 2009 semester.




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.


New Resource: Encyclopedia of Business Information Sources

Somtimes the best research is never published, it resides within people and institutions.  The Encyclopedia of Business Information Sources is an aid to connecting to industry insiders.  It provides access to trade and professional associations as well as manuals, directories, encyclopedias, article databases and statistical databases.


New Resource: BizMiner

Bizminer Academic offers “Sole Proprieter and Start-Up” and “Industry Financial Reports” with average income statements, cash flows, balance sheet and financial ratios for benchmarking and projections for smaller private enterprises. It is searchable by keyword, SIC code or industry cluster. It’s a nice online compliment to D&B’s Industry Norms and Key Business Ratios [REF HF 5681.R25 I561], Troy’s Almanac of Business and Industrial Financial Ratios [REF HF 5681.R25.T68], and RMA’s Annual Statement Studies [REF HF5681.B2].
