Company Research Guide

This guide identifies sources for basic business and company information, but not specific resources for broad business disciplines such as accounting, marketing or management.

Company Directories

A business directory provides basic information on businesses in an industry group. ​ How the businesses are organized and what you find are largely dependent on what database you use and what information the company has provided to that database. There is however some basic information you may be able to find such as the address, number of employees, contact information, and location. ​
