Joanne Farmer, Academic Librarian for Northampton Business School, reports:
“Some of you will already know that I have been looking into alternatives to Global Business Browser. This resource has served us well for many years but, more recently, has not been meeting the needs of students quite as well as it used to.
Following a trial of Bureau Van Dijk’s database Orbis, this has now been purchased as a (partial) replacement for Global Business Browser. This database provides in depth financial data in relation to very large global companies. To enhance the content on this database, I have also subscribed to the EIU Market Indicators and Forecasts component.
