Q: How can I find information about a particular company?


The following databases provide detailed information on companies including an overview, history, financials, key personnel, annual reports, SEC filings, and much more. You can find all of the databases that the library provides on our homepage by clicking the Find a Database link under the SuperSearch box. All the databases are listed in alphabetical order.

  • Mergent Online: Provides global business and financial information on over 25,000 US and foreign companies.
  • Morningstar Investment Research Center: Stock, ratios, performance, and financial information on publicly traded companies.
  • Privco: PrivCo is a source for business and financial research on non-publicly traded corporations, including family-owned, private equity-owned, venture-backed and international unlisted companies. You must register an account with your Kennesaw email to use this database.
  • Reference USA: Provides information on private companies in the United States and Canada. You can use it to find information about small businesses and franchise locations. You can search without creating a personal account, but creating an account will give you access to more search features.
