Library Databases

Information about private companies is harder to find than public companies because they do not generally disclose information other than what is available on their websites. There are few sources of information about private companies because they do not sell stock and therefore do not report to the Securities Exchange Commission.

Finding private company information can be difficult. Remember you can contact your Business Librarian (Judy Geczi - for help.
