Database trials: Mergent Private Company and Mergent WebReports

USF Libraries currently has trial access to two resources from Mergent: Private Company Database and WebReports.

First, we have access to Mergent’s Private Company Database. Dun & Bradstreet provides key information on U.S. and Canadian companies with annual sales greater than $3 million and global companies with annual sales greater than $10 million. You can go into Mergent through our databases, as usual and you will notice that on the basic search screen, toward the bottom, you can select a box that says “include private companies.” Also with this trial, in the Advanced Search, you can make it so only “Private Company DB” is selected or leave all selected. You can also access this database by going to the following URL: Just remember to log into the library’s web site if you are off campus.
