What's New at ReferenceUSA
The Birmingham Public Library has recently acquired two new online modules from ReferenceUSA, your go-to source for information about businesses. The first new module is U.S. Healthcare; this module provides profiles for more than 855,000 physicians and dentists. Your search may offer information about the doctor’s office, address information, personal information such as specialty, age, medical school attended, year of graduation, board certification, and hospital affiliation.
The second new module is U.S. Consumers/Lifestyles. This module is useful to organizations who wish to do targeted mailings and marketing, to assist them in possibly reaching new potential clients/customers. Through the custom search feature, you can run queries based on consumer interests such as purchase behavior, political leanings, entertainment interest, hobbies, etc.
If you have questions regarding our two new modules, please call your local Birmingham Public Library.
