ReferenceUSA – New business & general reference database

Posted by lrath on November 15, 2007

The ReferenceUSA database contains information for:

  • Over 14 million U.S. businesses, 950,000 high-tech companies (look in the Corp Tech section), 1.5 million Canadian businesses
  • 210 million U.S. residents, 855,000 U.S. health care providers, and 12 million Canadian households

Why should you use ReferenceUSA?

  • Identify businesses based on employee size, sales volume, type of business, location, year established, and other criteria
  • Identify private and/or small businesses (many of our library resources focus on large and/or publicly traded companies).
  • Great for identifying local businesses in NYC!
  • Great resource for those seeking employment
  • Can do reverse lookups (search by phone number, address)
  • Some records contain images of business storefronts, SEC filings, credit ratings, and  more.
  • Can search for residential phone numbers/addresses
