This guide will lead you to many of the Rutgers-restricted databases (as well as Web resources) which are useful for business research on companies, industries, and products.

Other print and electronic resources for business-related topics may be found by simply returning to the Rutgers University Libraries Business Research Guide.   There is a separate guide for Job Searching with additional information about looking for employment.  Other Rutgers-restricted databases may be found on the Indexes and Databases page.
