OneSource Global Business Browser is now available at HKS Library


We are happy to announce that OneSource Global Business Browser, which includes a broad range of public and private company and industry information worldwide, is now available on HKS Library PCs via this link. Use it to create a list of companies by industry, location and/or size.

Other resources that allow you to create this type of list include:

  • Plunkett Research, which provides access to industry and company information, including public and private companies. It also provides market research and industry trends, industry statistics, company profiles, and downloadable tables. HKS alumni can access Plunkett Research via this link uniquely for HKS alumni.
  • Orbis, which is a global company database unique in its breadth of geographies and extent of company coverage, including private company financial information.
  • Lexis/Nexis Company Dossier, which provides tools to create lists of companies, executives and to locate industry information via its Get Company Info section.
The Harvard Library has also recently purchased a historical dataset on U.S. companies called Infogroup Historical Business Backfile, 1997-2014.
If you have questions about these or other resources, please Ask Us.

Graduating? Due to popular demand, we will be hosting more Beyond Harvard Workshops!


Over the past couple of weeks we have hosted our Beyond Harvard: Public Policy Research as HKS Alumni workshops in the library. Thanks to all who have attended. It has been so inspiring to hear about the work our HKS students will continue upon graduation to solve critical public issues.

Due to popular demand, we will be hosting this 30-minute workshop two more times:

Where: HKS Library Instruction Room (Littauer G14)


  • Friday, May 20th at 2 p.m.
  • Monday, May 23rd at 2 p.m.

If you can’t make a scheduled workshop, consult our Beyond Harvard: Public Policy Research as HKS Alumni research guide, and please contact us to find out more about library resources available to you as alumni.
