EBSCO's Databases

A good place to start your research, as this collection of databases cover (almost) all topics. Very powerful search interface, but works just fine with simple searches.  Need help searching EBSCO's Databases?

Mergent Online

This database contains company data, not articles.  For example, you can find financial data, annual reports, a list of company executives, stock prices, etc.  It contains information on both publicly-traded and private companies, as well as data on "extinct" companies due to mergers, acquisitions, and bankruptcy.  Need help searching Mergent Online?
