ReferenceUSA Training Today

ReferenceUSA provides access to more than 14 million businesses and 100 million consumers with accurate, detailed, information. This is a service you get using your Santa Clara City library card from our website whether or not the library is open.

If you missed the computer training this morning in our Technology Center from Dan Erker of ReferenceUSA, you might want to watch a video found on the site. Just follow the links from the library's website, Research/Resources, Electronic Resources then alphabetically to ReferenceUSA or under the Business subject heading.

ReferenceUSA is helpful to job seekers trying to identify companies geographically and by type in order to focus a job search. Sales reps can identify types of companies based on number of employees, sales volume as well as product or brand. Lists can be generated and downloaded to a spreadsheet or other types of files. The information is updated regularly and checked for accuracy.

Get help with your ReferenceUSA questions in the library, by calling (408) 615-2900 during open hours or using the ReferenceUSA Patron Support phone: 1-800-808-1113 from 7-7 Central time daily.
