New Business Database Availability from Madison & Milwaukee Public Libraries

Two business databases available to public library card holders have just been announced:

Value Line from the Milwaukee Public Library

Value Line, a popular online database for investors, is now available remotely through the Milwaukee Public Library's Website. All City of Milwaukee residents with valid library cards can use this great resource. To access this database from your home computer: Go to the Milwaukee Public Library's home page. Select "Research Resources," then "All Library Databases". Scroll through the alphabetical list until you reach Value Line. Click on the Value Line link. Enter your library card number and PIN, and you're in!

Value Line is also available at some Madison Public Library locations.

Morningstar Library Edition from the Madison Public Library

Madison Public Library and the Madison Public Library Foundation are offering a five-month trial of the Morningstar Library Edition financial evaluation service. Morningstar Library Edition incorporates the best of Morningstar data, analysis, technology, and information design. Individual investors can access and use all of the features and functionality in this online destination, including analyst reports of 2,000 mutual funds and nearly 2,000 stocks. An exceptional Education Center offers in-depth guides on five different topics that matter most to today's investor: retirement planning, college planning, investing during retirement, investing for beginners, and portfolio tips and tricks.

Morningstar Library Edition will be accessible from November 1, 2007, to March 31, 2008, to anyone who visits a Madison Public Library location. The service will also be available remotely to any City of Madison resident who has a current public library card.

Morningstar is also available from the Milwaukee Public Library.


Thanks for mentioning our Morningstar trial on your blog. We're excited about offering Morningstar electronically, and hope to hear a lot of feedback from our patrons.

Thanks so much for sharing information about Milwaukee Public Library's new database product, Value Line. We see this as a significant improvement to our service and hope folks will let us know how it's working for them by calling Ready Reference at 286-3011, or posting a message to our new blog, Now@MPL, http://blog.mpl.org/nowatmpl/ Thank you, Joan Johnson, Central Library Director
