Global Road WarriorGlobal Road Warrior is a useful tool that contains profiles for 175 different countries in one convenient location.  Each country profile includes cultural information as well as demographics.  This tool is especially useful for people traveling for business, as it provides specific information about business culture.  Other information provided is equally useful to business and non-business travelers alike, such as information pertaining to travel documents and immunizations required for entrance.   Each profile contains points of interest, city views, maps, essential terms (language), transportation information, and other pertinent information for travelers.  This resource is also useful for children required to research the culture of a specific country for school.

Global Road Warrior is accessible to library patrons from any computer connected to the internet.  To access this database, visit the Chemung County Library District’s website, click on the link for “Reference”, “Electronic Databases”, and select “Global Road Warrior” from the list of databases.  You will be asked to enter the first 5 digits of your library card number before you will be allowed access to this resource.

Reference USA Business Directory is a database of businesses across the United States.  If you need to find information about a specific company, Reference USA Business Directory is a convenient, up-to-date tool.  For example, if you want to find out the name and contact information for a company president or manager, you can use this resource to search by company name or product (to narrow your results, you can also enter a location).  Similarly, if you know the name of a company executive but do not know the precise name of the company, you can search by executive name; you can also search by company phone number.

Company listings include information such as:  business demographics, management directory, nearby businesses, stock data, historical data, competitors report, and more.  There is also the option to display a “corporate tree” that allows you to view the hierarchical relationships within the corporation; if viewing a local subsidiary, you can see where it falls within the overall corporation.

This resource includes quick and custom search options.  Custom search allows you to search more specifically.  For example, you can limit your search by the gender of the company executive, the number of employees, the street address, etc.  On the results page, there is a button labeled “map” that will allow you to view the company locations on an adjustable map (you can zoom in and out and choose between different views).

To access this tool, visit the electronic databases page on our website: http://www.ccld.lib.ny.us/db.htm and select “Reference USA Business Directory” from the list.
