New Database for Business: IBISWorld

The OCC Library has started an online subscription to IBISWorld. IBISWorld is a wonderful collection of market research and information about industries. If you are doing a project requiring you to pull up information about an industry or starting your own business, this is the place to start! This information is put together by IBISWorld's  analysts and is not available for free on the Web. Current OCC students and staff can access IBISWorld through the library's Periodicals and Electronic Resources page with their campus login. Please contact Lori Cassidy if you have any questions.
