ITI 220: Retrieving and Evaluating Electronic Information (04:547:220)

This course guide contains library research resources for the IT market sector analysis project in ITI 220.

Company Research

The resources below are most useful when you are researching a particular company.

Find Articles

The following databases provide access to thousands of business publications. Finding news and articles about a particular company, industry, or product can provide additional context and access to the most up-to-date information

Company forecasts: 

  • When searching any of the above databases, combine a company name or code with subject headings/keywords such as economic indicators, earnings projections, budget figures, price indices, economic predictions, etc. to find out forecast information. 
  • Earnings calls - public company executives hold quarterly earnings/conference calls with analysts, investors and the media to discuss earnings results and answer questions about performance and current/future status. These transcripts are a good way to discover forecast information. They can be found on the "Investor Relations" section of company websites.  

Media Alerts

Several Rutgers databases allow the ability to set up news/media alerts, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Access World News and EBSCO (which includes Business Source Premier and Regional Business News). This can be very helpful if tracking a specific company, product  or industry. 

See the Media Alert Instruction Sheet below for details.
