3/30: Using Net Advantage for financial research, at Beaverton

photo, Dollars and Cents by Jeremy BrooksDid you know that WCCLS's online resources can help you choose financial investments? It's true, and it's free.

Net Advantage is a great database for investors, brokers, analysts, and researchers. It provides data on corporate bonds, company profiles, mutual fund profiles, and facts, figures, analysis and projections for publicly held U.S. corporations, as well as S&P's independent research, data and commentary.

Like most WCCLS online resources, you can use it at home, at work, or in the library—as long as you have your WCCLS library card.

On March 30 at 7 PM, WCCLS presents a free training session for Standard & Poor’s Net Advantage subscription database at the Beaverton City Library, Meeting Room B.

Dan Sovocool, Standard & Poor's Director of Reference Markets, will teach how to:
  • find stock reports
  • research mutual funds
  • search industry surveys
  • view company descriptions and financial information.
This class is free and open to the public. No registration required.

Beaverton City Library is located at 12375 SW 5th St at Hall Blvd.
