Expanded access to ReferenceUSA

Reference USA The Trusted Source for Public Libraries

The South Dakota State Library has expanded access to the database ReferenceUSA. This resource contains information concerning approximately 45 million current businesses within the United States, almost 200 million historical business records, over two million current job postings (through indeed.com), and the U.S. Standard White Pages. The business and consumer databases are continuously updated from more than 5,000 public sources.

You will be able to:
  • Find jobs by job skills, location, and industry
  • Locate companies nationwide
  • Research business executives
  • Find business opportunities
  • Look at historical market trends
  • Find addresses and phone numbers

Now anybody with a State Library e-card can login to access RefUSA. If you wish to access this database and do not currently have an e-card, please apply for one at http://library.sd.gov.

Just a reminder, the State Library can come and do a training for local business folks and librarians in your area. Please contact David Bradford, Digital Resources Coordinator at 295-3174.
