Library: More investment info & resources

Last week’s column featured Business Searching Interface which is a database on the State Library’s website for those interested in doing their own investment research.  Value Line is another tool for investors and is now available online on our library website at www.bossierlibrary.org.  The link is under the menu Research & Homework.

VickieHardin copyIn summary, “Value Line is for beginning and experienced investors with information about companies, industries, markets, and economies.”  The website is easy to navigate.  Click on Dashboard to access commentaries, quick links, video commentaries, news and analysis.  Click on Browse Research to find recently searched stocks, Value Line featured lists, and more.

The nicest feature about the databases on the Bossier Parish Library website is that you can work from home or anywhere you have an Internet connection.
