Hidden Collection: Historical Financial Reports

The Pomerantz Business Library provides a wealth of current financial data on companies.  Some historical reports exist online as well.  However, what if a researcher needs to find a 10-K from 1978?  Or a student requires a 1957 company report?   Users can find these at the Business Library.  Thousands of financial reports exist in a little known or “hidden collection”; data cover 1951-1956 and 1966-1998.

Microforms (the pre-digital storage solution) as well as CD-ROM’s offer access.  While a reader can browse items in the Business Library itself, the person may also check them out.  The Main Library has technology to view, print, and in some cases scan microforms.
