International Directory of Company Histories now available online

Company Histories

The Library now has online access to the International Directory of Company Histories via the Gale Virtual Reference Library.

This multi-volume work is the first major reference to bring together histories of companies that are a leading influence in a particular industry or geographic location.

Each three- to five-page entry is meticulously detailed with facts gathered from popular magazines, academic periodicals, books, annual reports and the archives of the companies themselves. Entries provide information on founders, expansions and losses, labor/management actions, NAICS codes, key dates, ticker symbol, principal subsidiaries, principal divisions, principal operating units, principle competitors and other significant milestones — all peppered with statistics, dates and names of key players.
