NOVELny Business Resources

For New York State residents, NOVELny provides access to two very useful business databases: Business and Company Resources Center and InfoTrac Custom Newspapers. Access is obtained by logging in with your NYS Driver License or NYS DMV Non-Driver Photo ID Card.

Business and Company Resources Center (BCRC) contains company profiles, brand information, rankings, investment reports, company histories, chronologies and periodicals. Thomson Financials' Investext Plus database is fully integrated in this database, which contains detailed data and analysis on publicly traded companies in a wide variety of industries. The information is contained in reports generated by analysts at leading research organizations worldwide. Information provided may include trends, sales and earnings forecasts, market share projects, and research and development expenditures. The database also contains all content found in Business and Company Index.

InfoTrac Custom Newspapers offers the full-text of several New York State newspapers, including the Albany Times Union, Buffalo News, Syracuse Post-Standard, New York Post, and New York Times.

I use BCRC often for industry overviews and InfoTrac for articles. I highly recommend both databases for industry and company research.
