Small business owners and entrepreneurs now have free access to ReferenceUSA, a comprehensive consumer research database.


The database is being offered to library cardholders by the Santa Clarita Public Library. The tool helps users create marketing plans, conduct competitive analyses, strategize fundraising opportunities, and access contact information for over 222 million consumers and 20 million international businesses.


The reference information is also helpful to job seekers, students, and new residents seeking to download scholarly articles and published research papers, as well as gather economic data summaries of particular neighborhoods, cities and states.


Job seekers can use ReferenceUSA to identify potential employers because it contains descriptions of more than 14 million businesses nationwide, including contact information for over 200,000 human resource departments.


New and prospective Santa Clarita residents will also be able to find schools, childcare centers, churches, medical services, and housing vacancies.
