Market research reports are wonderful resources for marketing, product development, and competitive intelligence.  Companies pay as much as $4,000 per report for this kind of research.  While the library cannot provide every report from every publisher, we are proud to provide reports published by Mintel, Euromonitor (GMID), and Gartner.  Now we’re adding to that list with’s Academic, including access to over 1,600 reports from publishers like:

• Biotechnology
• Healthcare
• Pharmaceuticals

Packaged Facts
• Food
• Demographics
• Consumer Goods and Services

• Manufacturing and Construction
• Materials and Chemicals

• Global Product Studies

And coming soon: Simba, focusing on media and publishing markets.

Mintel’s Makeover

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007


Mintel, a source of high-quality, in-depth market research reports, is now Mintel Oxygen. You can customize your Mintel homepage, and there is additional content in the form of market news, trends, and brief profiles of companies mentioned in reports.  The meat of this resource, the market research reports, is still available when you click on My Reports, and now it’s even easier to extract the tabulated data, view all the graphs and charts, and export to Excel or Word.

So if you have a hankering to read an August 2007 report on Cause Marketing in the US or one on Women’s Fragrances in Italy, take a look: Mintel Oxygen (Mintel requires you to register using your email address.  They do not send unsolicited email or share your information with anyone.)
