Mergent upgrade - better business searching

Mergent is a database that allows you to look up company information including executive profiles, annual reports, financials, and countless other crucial details. You can also do industry and country research using Mergent. The database has been updated with a new search interface that will make it easier and more intuitive to use.

The blue tabs going across the top work as context menus - each tab gives you access to different search functions while you're searching, and kinds of information when you're viewing reports. If you've ever used Microsoft Office 2007, you're already familiar with the idea. If not, it's pretty intuitive and you'll pick it up quickly.

Click the Help link at the upper right corner of the screen to get a menu of instructions on how to do a Basic Search, Advanced Search, Executive Search (for company executives, that is), search for Reports, search for Government Filings, and more. The instructions are straightforward and step-by-step.
