International Industry Information

Larry notified us that Information Advisor made its article on locating International industry information, published last month, freely available via


According to Bob Berkman, editor of The Information Advisor, the article is

"a round up of some of the best sources (market research and industry
databases, international agencies like UN, OECD, World Bank, associations,
etc.); and search strategies for zeroing in on official and reputable
information on industries around the globe."

Note that the GGU University Library provides GGU students and faculty with access to the major stand alone databases the article recommends: 1) Mergent Online, 2) S&P Net Advantage, and 3) OneSource, as well as to some of the databases the article's author accesses via Dialog, ABI Inform and the Economist.

A number of the organizational links the author provides are also included in the GGU University Library Country Information LibGuide, available via http://ggu.libguides.com/country
