Trials to two business databases

The library has two new business resources for you to try out:

IBISWorld Global Industry Reports provides a worldwide perspective on 73 industries within 11 broad categories, broken out geographically by key regions like Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and segmented by products, services, and major markets.

Industries are searchable by activity or code, by key word, or by company name, and reports can also be selected by browsing through the list on the Home page, where they are grouped by broad category (e.g., Global Manufacturing, Global Telecommunications, Global Business Activities).

Reports are downloadable as PDFs or Word documents, and tables that appear throughout the online reports can be exported to Excel.

Statista is a portal that integrates thousands of topics of data and facts from a wide range of sources onto a single platform, categorized into market sectors, providing access to quantitative facts on agriculture, finance, politics, and other areas. Sources of information include market researchers, trade publications, scientific journals, and government databases, with a focus on current (as opposed to historical) statistics.

IBISWorld will be available until the end of May, Statista until the end of April.
