Among the many books and resources the University Libraries offers, our online business databases can be used to access a wide variety of information, including industry and company data, demographics and statistics, financial records, and market research reports. Recently two of our popular business databases, IBISWorld and Mintel, have undergone some significant changes.

IBISWorld

IBISWorld is the University's number one source for comprehensive industry research. It contains in-depth reports of over 1000 industries including hundreds of specialized industry categories. Reports cover industry segments, market characteristics, operating conditions, profiles of key companies, and industry outlook.

Recently IBISWorld received an update with a brand new user interface, completely redesigned. The new interface is cleaner and easier to navigate. The reports have been intelligently redesigned as well, with left side navigation, and enhanced abilities to download data. The new interface offers improvements in both aesthetics and functionality.

Mintel Reports

Mintel Reports provides analysis of market sizes and trends, market segmentation, consumer attitudes, and purchasing habits at the national level. Researchers can find real-world statistics based on consumer survey data.

With Mintel's new makeover, it is easier than ever to search for reports and analysts' insights. You can now sort results by demographics, trends, categories, and more.

If you would like to learn more about IBISWorld or Mintel Reports and how these resources resource can be used for research and learning, please contact Librarian Mitch Winterman at mwinterman@unr.edu.
