Yes, we have Consumer Reports!

Consumer Reports coverEspecially at this time of year, library users ask for Consumer Reports. GRCC has online versions of both the monthly magazine and the Buying Guides through our MasterFile Complete database.

Consumer Reports is an independent consumer nonprofit that researches and tests products and services, and then publishes product reviews and rankings.  It’s a great tool to help you decide which products to purchase – or stay away from!

If you’re off-campus or using wireless, you may be asked to log on with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.

Business Insights Global – It’s Back!

Business Insights GlobalEvery 5 (or so) years, the selection of databases freely available to us through MeL Michigan eLibrary changes.  Consequently last year, we lost  Business Insights Global.  Due to its cost, we decided to “go without.”  Since no other resource we licensed did what it does, we re-evaluated our budget, cut other items, and re-licensed  Business Insights Global.

This database “contains detailed company and industry profiles including SWOT reports, market share reports, and financial reports. Also includes thousands of company histories and industry essays as well as case studies, scholarly journals, and business news for deep research coverage of global economies.”  It’s perfect for “doing business in (name a country)” research, or when doing a deep dive into an industry or company.

Take a look at what this databases has to offer, as well as others on the Business Subject Guide. Off-Campus users should logon with last name and 7-digit Raider number.
