How to use

Once you have logged in with your local library card, proceed to search in the directory of your choosing.

  • For this example we will pretend to be in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (cause I vacation here and don't work here)
  • Click on search under US Businesses.
  • Click on Advance search to pull up a more advance search.
    • (There are a ton of search criteria you can choose from. For starters it may be best to put in your exact location, then do a radius search off that.)
  • If you are building websites to get your foot in the door - choose verified businesses without a website.
  • If you are looking to find companies with a heavy IT budget, search for Business Expenditures
