Research Databases 2017-05-11T13:58:22+00:00

The databases and systems that we control are listed below. ISU Library also subscribes to other financial sources like Mergent (formerly Moody’s) Manuals and Morningstars.  

The Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS) is our access portal to many of the databases. Those databases are listed below. You must request an access account from WRDS (http://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu) to transfer your access from another university or to set up your access. Those requests must go through WRDS first, and then will be approved by Rick Dark or Arnie Cowan. For access to the non-WRDS accessible databases, email Rick Dark at dark@iastate.edu.
