The libraries first subscribed to Kompass in 2004 and at the time it was the only resource that provided international company and industry information. Since that time the libraries have acquired other databases that provide the same type of information, most notably Euromonitor Global Market Information Database and OneSource Global Business Browserwhich contains data from Kompass and other international company sources. While Kompass is not an expensive product, especially compared to other business databases, the business librarians felt the information in Kompass is readily available in other sources and the money needed to pay for Kompass would be better used on other products.
Therefore, we will be cancelling the title and it will disappear on March 31st. Please send your comments and concerns to Andrea Koeppe 2-4674 or email@example.com
