Two NEW business databases = Business & Industry (B&I) and TableBase

The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to announce the acquisition of two new business databases - Business & Industry (B&I) and TableBase.

B & I can be used to secure broad-based business information at an international level. B&I draws business news, facts and events from over 1000 trade publications, national, international, regional newspapers, business dailies, and newsletters. This database, whose coverage begins in 1994, focuses on facts, figures, key events, market information and intellectual property information.

TableBase specializes exclusively in tabular data on companies, industries, products and demographics. Users can find and select market share, company and brand rankings, industry and product forecasts, production and consumption statistics, imports and exports, usage and capacity, number of users/outlets, trends and much, much more. TableBase data is culled from the more than 1000 publications included in B&I, privately published statistical annuals, trade associations, government agencies, non-profit research groups, and industry reports prepared by investment research groups. For tables from the trade and business press and reports, full text is available along with tables, in most

Both databases may be accessed from the Indexes page on this website.
