Video Transcript:

Many business courses require students to find information about different industry sectors. There are several library resources that you can use to find this type of information. This video will show you how to use NetAdvantage from Standard & Poor’s to find industry surveys. There are over 40 surveys for the U.S. plus 25 industries in Europe, 25 in Asia and three in Latin America.

To get to the industry surveys in NetAdvantage, select “Industries” from the menu at the top of the database’s homepage. This takes you to the domestic industry page, so if you need a global industry survey, click on that link on the left hand side of the page. [Click on Global Industry Surveys.]

This page lists active surveys, but if you want to view other industries that have been surveyed in the past, click on the “Other Archived Titles” link.

To view the survey, find the appropriate industry sector and click on the region for the survey you’d like to view. Let’s select Airlines in Asia for this example.

You can view the document online, or save the PDF. If the menu icons are not on the screen, you may need to move the mouse around to display the menu. Here I can save or print the survey.

As mentioned earlier in this video, the library has several other resources where you can find industry reports. These include Mergent, First Research and the OECD iLibrary from the Organisation of Economic and Co-operative Development. OECD reports only include member countries of the OECD.

If you have any questions about finding industry information or have other questions, please contact the Alvin Sherman Library.
