Company & Industry Research Tutorial

This tutorial will take you through the steps to researching a company or industry.

Company Websites

Your company’s website can be a valuable source of information about the company, but please keep in mind that the company has its own best interests in mind and will project that image on its website. Carefully consider the information that you find on your company’s website. Is it accurate and unbiased? You will want to check facts through independent sources such as the articles you can find through the library databases.

Many company websites are primarily ways to promote and market their services, so to find information about the company on their website, look for links that say things like

  • Corporate
  • Company Info
  • About Us

You can find other information coming from the company by looking for links like

  • Investor Relations
  • Press Releases
  • News and Media

For assistance in evaluating websites, consult the tutorial listed below:
