Changes to Kresge Library Resources

For the past year, Kresge librarians have been undertaking a large project to evaluate our database offerings to ensure that we are meeting the diverse information needs of the Ross School of Business. For each of our resources, we have been exploring issues such as quality of data, usability and potential redundancy with other offerings. Our goal, especially in these lean budgetary times, is to streamline our database offerings to best meet the needs of the school. The following database changes are forthcoming from Kresge Library:


  1. Bloomberg. The Library canceled its subscription to the two Bloomberg terminals; however access to Bloomberg is still available in the Tozzi Center. The effective date for this is August 16, 2010. Most company financial information that could be found in Bloomberg may also be found in other library databases like Thomson One Banker, OneSource, or Mergent.
  2. Demographics Now. The Library canceled its subscription to Demographics Now, a demographics and mapping database, in favor of SimplyMap, a more powerful tool that utilizes data from agencies such as the US Census, Easy Analytic Software Inc. (EASI), and Mediamark Research, Inc. (MRI).
  3. Thomson SDC Platinum. The Library canceled its subscription to Thomson SDC Platinum effective August 30, 2010. We have replaced this service with Zephyr, an online mergers and acquisitions database produced by Bureau Van Dijk.

    Please note: SDC remains available for all RBS Faculty and PhD students. Please contact Paul Michaud in Research Computing for further information regarding SDC.

  4. ELM: This resource contains data on Automotive Suppliers, which is available in OneSource, Mergent Horizon and other company databases. This resource was canceled in July 2010.
  5. Emerging Medical Technology: This resource did not provide the types of answers in the medical devices industry that we had hoped. This subscription expired in July 2010.
  6. Mergent Events Data: This resource was not used by the community, and so was not renewed (effective July 2010).

As always, please feel free to contact us using the form or chat box on our homepage if you have questions or concerns about these or any other Kresge Library resources.

MeLCat adds functionality for quicker requests

The Michigan eLibrary Catalog (MeLCat), a union catalog of libraries all over the state of Michigan, is a great resource for Kresge patrons. MeLCat allows users to request items from other libraries and have them delivered straight to the Kresge Library circulation desk.

MeLCat recently released a new feature that streamlines book requests. Users must still select their library location and enter their name and MCard barcode once, but will no longer need to re-enter this information when requesting more than one resource in a single browsing session.

Search or browse MeLCat, or learn more about the new feature.

A Great Place for Advertising: YouTube

There are a number of resources that you can use to view advertisements. One of the resources that is definitely worth checking out is YouTube (it is not just for stupid stunts anymore)!

From the New York Times

For Marketing, the Most Valuable Player Might Be YouTube
By STUART ELLIOTT
Published: February 5, 2008
The Internet, digital video recorders, mobile devices and other technologies are giving a strong postgame presence to the annual roster of Super Bowl commercials.

Follow this link for the full article.

With more and more advertising available via YouTube and other resources, it is easier than ever to find and use advertising in your research.

The trick is getting the file so you can use it on your desktop when you are not connected to the Internet. Getting a file from YouTube has been tricky. But there is a great web application that you can use to grab YouTube videos and convert them to MP4 files.

Called YouTube to iPod and PSP Converter, this small program will download and convert YouTube videos into an MP4 file format among others. Good for your iPod, your PowerPoint Presentation or for working offline. This is from DVDVIDEOSOFT.COM and is free.

For students and faculty at the Ross School of Business, there is also Adforum. This database provides access to over 35,000 advertisements in all media. The focus is international. The database has audio and video capability. The source also provides access to news and other information relating to the advertising industry, including agency information. Be sure to log off as directed on the password sign on screen.

Thinking about...Video Games

With the recent release of the Sony Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii, and the ensuing campouts for one of the new game consoles, it got me thinking about what resources one might seek to explore more about this multi-billion dollar industry. At Kresge Library, we have a large number of market reports and news information that can show exactly what people spend on video game systems.

Marketing Reports

The Library has many resources that have information on Marketing.

Develop a search strategy that reflects the scope of the industry. While you can search each of these databases for "video games" or "video game console systems," you might also be served looking in other directions

Mintel Reports offers a number of reports that help explain this market.
Not only do they include reports specifically looking at the video game market (Video Game Consoles and Games - US - August 2004 & Video Game Console Systems - US - July 2006), but some general reports that look at the role of electronics in the young adult market (Attitudes of Young Adults Towards Consumer Electronics - US - October 2005).

With MarketResearch.com, the most valuable reports focus on the youth market. Over 270 items come up with a search of Video Games. But be careful, some of the best matches (from a keyword point of view) are older reports. If you see a reference to Nintendo 64...its time to get another report.

GMID (Global Market Information Database) has great reports from Euromonitor on many subjects. To get to reports on video games, or any topic, click on keyword search on the top menu. You can search video games. (A little hint with this database - if you get no hits, take a word out of the search strategy. This will cast out a wider net and catch more reports). The keyword search results will show statistics first and then the reports. To see the report (say Video Games – USA), click on the second button on the upper right (Click to view whole report) and then the PDF icon to make it easy to print.

Company and Industry Resources

The Library has many resources that have information on Company and Industry Resources.

While the video games might seem all consuming to many people out there, it represents just a portion of the big companies that produce or sell these items. Still, by looking at those reports, you will get a great feel for what the market really is. Databases such as Business and Company Research Center, OneSource, Standard and Poors Net Advantage, MarketLine Business Information Center, and others offer great resources for learning more about the people who are closely tied with the video game market.

Among the manufacturers, use these databases to learn more about Playstation 3’s Sony (Ticker: SNE), Xbox 360’s Microsoft (Ticker: MSFT) or Gamecube’s Nintendo. Among companies that create the games, you can search for Take-Two Interactive Software (Ticker TTWO), the fine people who bring us family games such as Grand Theft Auto , Activision (Ticker: ATVI) who create game tie-ins for Tony Hawk and Dreamworks. You would also be served to explore the companies that sell thousands of these units and millions of the games every year. They include: Best Buy (Ticker: BBY), Circuit City (Ticker: CC), Wal-Mart (Ticker: WMT), Gamestop (Ticker: GME) and CompUSA (privately held) just to name a few. Look at all the information on these companies, especially analyst reports, to get a sense on how the fluctuations of the video games market effects their bottom line.

Article Databases
You can also search for news articles from resources such as ABI/Inform, Business Source Complete (EBSCO) and Factiva from the Electronic Journals page.

When searching the databases, remember that sometimes you need to change your terms to make searches more successful. Many reports and articles will be found by searching for generic terms such as video games vs. the individual game systems. Finally, remember that these databases are changing every day. As vendors face shortages or gluts of their products, you will be able to use these resources to get a sense of what is going on.

Dreaming of Candy...Information on the Halloween Market

Thinking about all that Halloween candy bought yesterday for trick or treaters? So are we. At Kresge Library, we have a large number of market reports and news information that can shed some light on exactly how much candy is sold for this holiday…and others.

The Library has many resources that have information on Marketing.

Mintel Reports: See reports entitled Seasonal Chocolate Confectionery - (August 2006) & Holiday Shopping - (April 2005)

MarketResearch.com: See reports entitled (The U.S. Market for Chocolate, Candy, Gum & Mints, Volumes I-III (2003)

IBISWorld: See reported entitled (31134 - Nonchocolate Confectionery Manufacturing in the US)

You can also search for news articles from resources such as ABI/Inform, Business Source Complete (EBSCO) and Factiva from the Electronic Journals page.

When searching the databases, remember that sometimes you need to change your terms to make searches more successful. Many reports will be found by searching for Halloween, but you might find more by searching for “seasonal and candy?. The latter search will also yield information on Christmas, Easter and Valentine’s Day, three large candy holidays.

There are also many great resources available via the Internet. One resource is the National Retail Federation. They have a page of information on holidays and special occasions since 2002. Insofar as Halloween Candy, the NRF reports that the average consumer will spend $18.72 on candy. The entire Halloween market in the states is expected to approach $5 billion dollars! Go to full press release and survey results.
