Mergent Archives

The Auburn University Libraries have just acquired Mergent Historical Annual Reports (1844–present), located in the Mergent Archives

 The corporate annual reports of the past are a rich source of informationfor scholars in business, economics, and history, yet they’re seldom used.The problem? Finding them. Retrospective reports are scattered around the world on film, fiche, and tattered paper. Aggregating and digitizingthem is a daunting task. Now, Mergent’s done it— we have added three historical collections covering the U.S., Canada and International companies. We’ve gathered, digitized, and indexed these vital business records and provided seamless accessto the entire collection via our newest database, Mergent Archives.

 

Mergent Archives covers three databases offering more than 1,000,000 documents covering over 100 years

• USA—Over 370,000 documents

• Canada—Over 150,000 documents

• International—Over 500,000 documents

 

Mergent Archives’ Historical Annual Reports collection offers easy, one-stop access to these rare records and gives researchers a first-hand look at the evolution of business the world over. Mergent Archives’ Historical Annual Reports collection will deliver to your library:

• A simple, online screening tool allowing researchers to search across reports by company name, year, city and state, and document type

• Fully searchable text in every document, allowing researchers to find the information they need most and streamlining their research by helping them to more easily explore data

• Continued and daily updates to both the historical reports collection and currently released documents
