Library Update by Brian Burch

This month I wanted to take a moment to highlight our database Mergent Intellect by FTSE Russell.  This database gives you access to a treasure trove of information…

on companies, executives, key business ratios and even job searches with over 20 million employers in the US, over 400,000 Canadian employers and one million in Mexico..  You can also perform residential searches through over 210 million US consumers and search different demographics based off the latest census data by zip code, MSA or Industry.  There are lots of great features on this database that you can use to help your business grow and flourish!  To access this resource, go to and click on the Research tab across the top toolbar.  Click “Databases By Subject”, scroll down to “Businesses and Investing” and click on Mergent Intellect.  At this point you will need to input your library card number for access.  Don’t have a library card?  Stop by the Ellet Branch Library or any of the other 16 branches or Main Library and get one.  They are free and it only takes a couple of minutes!

I also wanted to take a moment to thank all who came to the June 21st presentation at the Ellet Library.  I hope all of you enjoyed the presentation and were able to access and enjoy the resources I shared.  I look forward to seeing everybody at the Main Library on July 19th at 1pm for a tour of the Tech Center and the Microbusiness Center!
