BUS 110 Business Profile Assignment: Company Research


To complete the Libguide Assignment, use the Nexis Uni database to locate the Hoover's Company report and Business Source Complete database to locate company profiles. For the Business Profile paper, use the Business Source database to locate the company profiles. Nexis Uni will also be used to to fill in certain areas of data. Use the PDF instructions below to find the most effective ways of using both databases.

If not on an Edison State campus, Edison login credentials are required to access library resources. This will be name and Library barcode number (1973 + student ID #), including the zeros. If you need help, contact the Library by phone (937)-778-7950 or email

Finding out information directly from the company's website is a great way to start the research journey. The websites often provide the first-hand information that is needed. Make sure that it is actually sponsored by the company, and is not a webpage designed by an unreliable source.

A good place to start is the company's About page and the Investor page.
