These two directories, formerly available only in print at Rod Library, are now online and can be accessed on campus from computers on the UNI campus network. (Off campus users will not be able to obtain search results.) The overall name for the database is Uniworld Online. The Rod Library subscription for American Firms Operating in Foreign Countries can be used to "Search by Country" and create a list of U.S. companies operating in China, for example.
Students, are you finding enough good information for your research projects? Or is there one stubborn research topic that just won't come up with good search results? If you are stuck on a topic-- or even just need one more piece of information to complete your research -- reference librarians are here to help you. We are experts at finding information that is solid and authoritative, just as is required for most class projects.
