Business Information in LexisNexis

Hello students! Did you know that you can use LexisNexis to find information on companies including news, company profiles, and information about their competitors? This is obviously helpful for business students, but aviation, construction, alternative and renewable energy students and anyone who wants more insight into businesses in their industry would be able to use LexisNexis for this helpful information.

In order to access LexisNexis, log-in to the EU Library splash page at: http://www.evergladeslibrary.com. Your username is your seven digit student ID# and the password is the last four of your SSN.

LexisNexis is located in the blue box under “Databases”.

LN1

Once you’re at the LexisNexis main search page, locate the box for “Get Company Info” in the top right corner.

LN2

Type in the name of the company you’re interested in learning more about. Example: “Apple” or “Pizza Hut”. Click the blue “go” button.

LN3

Choose the result you want from the list. (The first one is usually the most relevant.)

LN4

The navigation bar on the list gives you options for financial information, news, company hierarchy, competitors and more.

The main box gives company information including the address headquarters, contact information, a business description, and stock information.

Natural Standard Tutorial Video

Natural Standard

Attention Alternative Medicine Students!

Natural Standard, one of our premier EU library databases for Complementary and Alternative Medicine research, made a 9-minute video that covers the basic elements of what you can find on the database. The nice thing about this video is that it offers a concise overview of the website, yet it goes into a bit more detail than we do on our 5-minute library video tutorial about our Alt Med resources (you can watch that video and our other library videos at http://www.screencast.com/users/Twilight14).

Here is the direct link to the Natural Standard video and video website URL:

 http://www.naturalstandard.com/demo/

To access Natural Standard and our other EU library databases, you must first log in to our EU library website. Go to: www.evergladeslibrary.com, then enter your Username (student ID number) and password (last four digits of your SSN; if the first digit is a zero, replace it with a one). For faculty members who have set up library accounts, your username is your first name followed by the last four of your SSN, and your password is your last name. Once you are logged in, our library databases are located in the left-hand column in the big blue box.

NDNR is presented in a unique case-study format and is written by naturopathic physicians in the US and Canada. NDNR includes current protocols, practice management, business development, marketing, clinical research, news and more.

One of the featured articles right now is “Homeopathy for Autism and Gastrointestinal Disease” by Angelica Lemke which traces some of the commonalities among autism spectrum patients with gastrointestinal difficulties, different treatments that were explored, and what improvements were seen. This type of article is a great example of what you’ll typically find in an issue of NDNR.

You can read the print edition of NDNR in the EU Orlando campus library. Many of their articles are also available online at http://ndnr.com/. Be sure to check out their articles directory by topic!
