Mergent Online database access restored

The library just restored access to Mergent Online, a business database that was dropped this last summer in favor of Morningstar Library Edition, at the request of the School of Business. This decision was made based partly on the concern over the growing subscription fees for Mergent Online, and we wanted to move to a product that would be more stable, in terms of price, while still offering the content needed for business research on campus.

However, Mergent came to us and offered to restore our access for a much lower subscription cost, which would be grandfathered in so that we would be paying the same fee in subsequent years as well! Since we had liked the content on Mergent, and had dropped the subscription only over price concerns, we jumped at the offer, after consultation with the School of Business.

Mergent Online is now back, and is available at Right now, access is available only on campus, but we're working on getting our login/password access back.

Mergent offers coverage on U.S. and international companies, including annual reports, earnings estimates, equity pricing, institutional holdings, industry reports, and more.
