Have you ever wondered how to get the most out of the Search Article’s tool on the library website? Search Articles or Summon is a powerful way to search for articles and other content in many of the library’s resources all at the same time. Summon searches over many of the library’s databases and the catalog providing a Google-like search experience by allowing students to use one search box to discover credible and reliable library content.
For a quick demonstration of how to use Summon’s many search features, check out this video:
PrivCo provides business and financial data on major, private corporations, including family owned, private equity owned, venture-backed, and international unlisted companies. It also provides data on private company investors, venture capital funding, and merger and acquisition deals. The database content is constantly growing. It currently contains:
- Over 650,000 private company profiles
- Over 100,000 private market M&A and Venture Capital funding deals
- Over 18,000 private market investors
The database has recently added new features, such as:
- Saved Search and Notifications: When a user logs in to conduct an advanced search, they now have the option to save their search. Saved searches can be accessed without re-entering the initial search criteria. Users can also track a specific search and will receive an email notification if and when additional results are added to the tracked search. Saved searches are managed using the account settings on the upper right corner of the screen.
Manage saved searches using account settings
- Company Watchlist: Users can add companies to a “watchlist”. If updates are made to a company profile that is on a user’s watchlist, PrivCo will notify the user. Add companies to your watchlist by clicking on the star to the left of the company’s name in their profile.
Select the star on any profile to add it to your watchlist
