Databases are collections of authoritative information sources, such as newspaper and magazine articles, pamphlets, and reference books.  An “online” or “electronic” database makes print content available in a digital format via the Web.  You can print, save, and share the words and images you find, subscribe to RSS feeds when new articles become available, and more!
Search this database to find information on thousands of companies and industries.

Find articles from more than 1,900 popular and general news, business, consumer health, general science, and multi-cultural periodicals.

You can also read book reviews, reference works, travel books, biographies, primary source documents, and an image collection of photos, maps, and flags.

Use this directory of more than 14 million U.S. public and private businesses and 89 million U.S. residents to find out more about a company or to find a person.
