Morningstar Introduces Customized Version of Morningstar.com for Libraries

CHICAGO, Jul 24, 2002 – Morningstar, Inc., a global investment research firm, today introduced a new online service exclusively for libraries. Morningstar.com® Library Edition is based on Morningstar's investment Web site, Morningstar.com, offering proprietary stock and mutual fund analysis, screening tools, and portfolio-building features to public, corporate, and academic libraries. 

Morningstar.com Library Edition is one of the first online information services that extends to libraries comprehensive, independent investment research that can be made easily available to their patrons. The service offers access to exclusive Morningstar.com features including:

  • Proprietary, independent Morningstar Analyst Reports on 1,000 stocks and 2,000 mutual funds.     
  • Access to innovative evaluation tools, such as the Morningstar Rating™ for funds and stocks and the Morningstar® Style Box™.    
  • Screening tools that search more than 20,000 stocks and mutual funds, using a variety of criteria.    
  • Portfolio features that allow patrons to assemble stock and fund selections into a portfolio to see how the investments would work together.

"We designed Morningstar.com Library Edition with the special needs of libraries in mind," said Catherine Odelbo, president of Morningstar's retail business unit. "This Web-based service uses IP recognition technology that makes it easy for patrons to use the Web site immediately without training or assistance. We have been working with libraries for more than 15 years, and this innovative online program is a natural extension of the services we've developed to provide investors with access to valuable analysis and research." 

Librarians may obtain the customized version of Morningstar.com through the company's Library Services unit, which offers sales support and customer service to more than 4,000 public, special, and academic libraries nationwide.
