The International Directory of Company Histories offers accurate and detailed information on the development of the world's largest and most influential companies. Each three- to five-page entry is detailed with facts gathered from popular magazines, academic periodicals, books, annual reports and the archives of the companies themselves. Entries provide information on founders, expansions and losses, labor/management actions, NAICS codes, key dates, ticker symbol, principal subsidiaries, divisions, operating units, and competitors, along with relevant statistics, dates and the names of key players. The Directory, which is hosted on the Gale Virtual Reference Library platform, can be browsed or searched by keyword. As new volumes are published, they will be added to the online platform for expanded coverage.
