Reference USA is a database that enables users to perform customized searches of business and residential listings.
 
Follow these instructions for access:
 
1. Start at the library homepage www.gwinnettpl.org
 
2. Roll your cursor over the "Digital" tab at the top of the screen and click "All Digital Resources"
 
3. On the next page click the drop down arrow for "Choose Category," select "Business and Personal Finance" and click "Apply Filter"
 
4. An icon for Reference USA will be available to click.  You will be prompted to enter your library card and pin number to access this resource.
 
Using the search tools available through Reference USA, you may build a targeted search using limiters related to location, number of employees, SIC or NAICS codes, and more. For example, you could pull up a list of all pest control businesses in the city of Lilburn. Library staff will be happy to show you some of these features if you stop by your local branch.
 
Thank you for using the library.
