Martin Osborne & Daren Mansfield

(Academic Subject Librarians for the Business School)

This PowerPoint video includes two videos (FAME & Marketline) that we’ve produced (in Camtasia) on finding company information. Based on an imaginary assignment on British Airways PLC and the UK airline industry, the video is designed to show students how to find financial statements, company profiles and management tool analyses. There is a full screen option on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

UK and International Newspapers

This handout about UK and international newspapers was part of a 90-minute workshop delivered throughout the year, covering all the University’s newspaper databases.

Do you need any help with your research (finding quality journal articles, searching relevant databases, etc) or Harvard Referencing? Why not come along to our drop-in session based opposite Starbucks on the ground floor of the Business & Law building.  We are happy to see you.

Finding Information for Accountancy and Finance 12-13

Originally based on the Financial Times website, the annual report service  is free, easy to use, and (potentially) hundreds of reports can be posted to your home address on a CD. This site will prove useful for anyone conducting primary research into company information. By way of recommendation, the London Stock Exchanges refers to this website on its homepage.
