Business Resources Available to the Public

Searching for Competitors

Competition is a part of business, and it is important to understand the competitive landscape of your business. Companies that provide the same goods and services as you are your direct competitors, but businesses also compete with additional companies indirectly. Once you understand what your industry is and the other industries that you are competing with, these are the best places to find information on those companies.  

FSU Resources

Outside researchers can gain access to FSU resources through the visitor research kiosks at the Strozier Library. In order to gain access to the library, a valid state-issued ID must be presented. This computers do not allow access to webpages other than the FSU resources, and it is necessary to bring a flashdrive to download these materials.

Other Resources to Look For

Most public libraries provide access to databases pertaining to business, and sometimes these databases are not held by FSU. Also, most public universities and some private universities provide access to some or all of their resources to the public. Make sure to look out for these resources when visiting your public library or another college or university.
