Sources of Information

Periodicals
Magazines and newspapers often contain listings of current opportunities. These are also a good source for information on current events in a specific company or a field in general. Search for current articles written about any organization by using an index such as the Business Periodicals Index, or the Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature. Also, check the indexes for the major papers (Boston Globe, New York Times, Wall Street Journal). All are available in the Folsom Library.

Directories
There are many reference books available in the Folsom library which can give you basic information about an organization. Depending on the directory, the information could include address, phone number, number of employees, product lines, location of branches or subsidiaries and/or a list of chief executives. Many directories are categorized by subject area (e.g., manufacturing organizations, consultants, etc).

Talk to a reference librarian in Folsom, or a career counselor in the CCPD, if you are having trouble identifying a directory that would help you find the answer to your specific question.

Computerized Databases/CDs
Folsom Library has several computerized databases and compact discs. Compact Disclosure contains reports on publicly held companies. ABI/Inform contains company and industry information. F & S Index provides abstracts, excerpts and articles from over 1,000 business sources. American Business Disk gives you access to over 4,800 yellow page telephone directories in the U.S.
