About Us
Featured Database - ReferenceUSA


ReferenceUSA is an essential information source for finding information on businesses, individuals, and physicians. The Library offers three distinct ReferenceUSA products:

U.S. Businesses:

With over 24 million US businesses listed and updated continually, this database is comprehensive and current. You can search by company name, location (down to zip code level), business type, sales volume, number of employees, parent company, and more. Some companies even have job postings and current news articles included. The real strength of this database is that you can make custom lists by using your own combinations of search criteria.

U.S. Standard White Pages:

5,200 White Pages telephone directories have been compiled to list 89 million individuals across the USA. It provides name, address, phone number, median home value, and median home income as well as reverse-lookup capabilities.

U.S. Healthcare:

Provides the names of 855,000 physicians and dentists, their location, gender, age, state of license, which medical school they attended, and more. There is also a guided tour that includes short instructional videos that have step-by-step instructions on searching the database.

ReferenceUSA now includes data visualization tools like heat maps, charts, and graphs. Use heat maps to find high-density concentrations for specified criteria, like business type, home value, income, and more.

This resource is found in the Business section of the Online Databases which includes other useful tools, like Business Plans Online.

Available with your library card and PIN from all library computers and from your home or office computer. For more information about applying for a library card, visit Get Your Card.
