Finding our training

I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk



Finding Company Reports Using Library Search

Company reports are an important source for anyone studying businesses and industries. We provide access to 100,000s reports through Mergent Online and Mergent Archive.  But we still hold print reports in the Library. These are mainly from banks, building societies and the transport sector.

You can find these reports with the print periodicals in the basement of the David Wilson Library.

To find them using the Library search follow the steps below.

1. Go to the Advanced Search. Change Material Type to 'Journal'.

2.To find a particular company use the name of company AND "annual report" or 
"annual report and accounts". Here's an example for the Alliance and Leicester Building Society:






3. To search for a sector, try Bank (or Building Society or Transport) AND "annual report" or 
"annual report and accounts". Use a date range if appropriate.
