Sorkins access for Webster MO and IL campuses only

Fast login for Missouri and Illinois on-campus users.

Beginning January 25, 2008, Sorkins is only available to Missouri and Illinois Webster campus users. (Whiteman AFB, MO is excluded as it has no dedicated Webster IP address.) This change fulfills the contract terms of the database producer, Sorkins. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Several databases available to all Webster users include company directories which may be used to create lists of US companies using geographic and industry criteria. The Business & Company Resource Center provides access to large companies covered in the Ward's Business Directory of U.S. Private and Public Companies. Click on the "Company" option to search by name, industry, products or location. The LEXIS-NEXIS Academic database offers access to multiple company directories and can cover small to large companies in a single search. An Adobe PDF Guide to Searching Companies on Lexis-Nexis Academic is linked here.

Please contact the Reference Desk 314-968-6950 or toll free: 1-800-985-4279 or use our Ask A Librarian e-mail service for additional information or help using these databases.

To log in to Sorkins from an on-campus, Internet connection please use the fast login link above.
