International Falls Public Library
The library now subscribes to Value Line, an independent investment research and financial publishing firm designed specifically to meet the highest needs of the professional investor. They
deliver timely, accurate, and unbiased information in a professional format that integrates Value line’s fundamental research with quantitative disciplines. Valueline expanded survey includes information on approximately 6,000 businesses. We have added this service at the request of several patrons. We can have up to two individuals in building and remotely accessing Value Line at a time, You can access this service via our website at http://internationalfallslibrary.us/resources.html. A user identification and password is required. If you know the standard library user id and password, then you can access immediately. Otherwise you will need to call and ask for the user id and password or stop into the library and get a card with the information on it. We will be evaluating the usage of this service for a year to determine if we have enough interest to maintain it. So please spread the word that it is now available and encourage friends and family interested in investing to utilize the resource.
