IBISWorld: new ULS database
Pitt's University Library System has notified us that we now have access to a new database called IBISWorld. It is a business database containing research reports on over 700 U.S. industries. These industry reports are searchable by the 5 digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS code), keyword or company name. There is also a browse feature organized by industry name and NAICS code. For example, this page has a report on the search engine industry and includes information on the current state of the industry, the future outlook for the next five years, the major search engine companies and their market share, key industry statistics and a helpful "Jargon and Glossary" section. The report also has some hyperlinks to "Additional Resources For additional information on this industry".
