(PRWEB) July 30, 2013
Librarian Dana Brumbelow isn’t keeping quiet about the versatile advantages of AtoZdatabases for her northern Virginia patrons.
In her “Secrets of the Library” column published Saturday, July 27 in the Star Exponent newspaper, Brumbelow explains how the AtoZdatabases system in place at the Culpeper County Library can be used as a no-charge alternative to expensive directory assistance inquiries. She also advises using the product for job searches and other reference needs.
“This database could be ideal for entrepreneurs trying to find similar businesses along with competitors. Students can research businesses by industry or segment and company size. Government agencies can find employment statistics as well as information for mapping and traffic modeling,” writes Brumbelow, the library’s assistant director. “Check out the ‘Find a Job’ search tool, too. Job seekers will find this a useful tool in learning about various careers and jobs. Use this database to check your holiday card address list, too!”
AtoZdatabases is the leading supplier of reference and marketing databases as well as job searches for public libraries, academic institutions and government organizations. Users can access 2.3 million job listings in addition to 300 million business and consumer profiles containing names, street addresses, email addresses, landline phone numbers and other information. A database of 200 million cellphone numbers will be introduced soon, making it even easier for users to connect with job and sales prospects.
“Best of all, this information can be downloaded and/or emailed, which means you can share the information with your friends, relatives and coworkers for free,” Brumbelow writes in her column.
AtoZdatabases President Rakesh Gupta says the no-cost, user-friendly functions of the service are a natural fit in libraries such as Brumbelow’s.
“Libraries are important educational, social and cultural centers in the communities they serve,” he says. “Now with AtoZdatabases, libraries are becoming a one-stop shop for students, small businesses, job seekers and all patrons.”
