Worst case scenario: a patron comes up to you while there is no librarian in sight and asks, "How can I find key ratios and the ethnic make-up of the board members of these 5 companies? Some are public and some are not."

You want to run away screaming, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!"

Well, I can help you with one thing: you can no longer find business information in Hoover's database, one that is commonly requested from business students, because we are discontinuing our subscription to it.

The decision to discontinue our subscription was influenced by a few factors:

1. They were not allowing remote access to the database even though we were paying for it
2. It is equally possible to get the same information in our other business databases, such as ABI Inform Global, Business and Company Resource Center, and Mergent Online, just to name a few.


To close this one, remember if you ever feel intimidated by business questions, or any other type of research question, you can request extra training on that topic/database/etc. Just let Kelci know!
