On June 23, 2009, Kresge Library discontinued its subscription to Hoover's.

Kresge Business Administration Library has begun a review of the databases it makes available to the Ross School of Business to determine whether or not there is any duplication between any of them. Databases which have content that duplicates the information in other products will not be renewed, freeing up funds that the Library will use to purchase new content for use by the School.

In the past several years the Library has begun subscriptions to several databases with general and financial information about companies; these include Mergent, OneSource, and Orbis. Some highlights of these resources include:

After comparing the content and features of Hoover's with the features and content of these newer databases, the Library decided to not renew Hoover's. Access to this database expired on June 23, 2009. After you try out Mergent Online, OneSource, or Orbis, please contact Nathan Rupp at Kresge Library at nrupp@umich.edu with any questions or concerns about this decision.
