OMAHA, NEB., Jan. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ReferenceUSA, an online reference and research database from Infogroup, announced the release of its revolutionary new tool today: Historical Data. ReferenceUSA leverages Infogroup's database of 25 million businesses to launch the first-ever online historical data tool, with information dating back to 2003. The new module provides business, employee and industry trends by year and geographic area all in one database that is accessible through public libraries.

The Historical Data module will officially launch at the American Library Association's Midwinter Conference, January 24–27, 2014, in Philadelphia, PA. Attendees will have the chance to demo the new module in-person at the ReferenceUSA booth and gain insight on how the module can help patrons, emerging businesses and researchers.

"Because our data is telephone verified and uniquely comprehensive, our customers have been asking us to provide the additional capability to query and analyze business changes over the years," said Steve Laird, general manager, ReferenceUSA. "They wanted to be able to do research and create business strategy based on trends. Now, we have the ability to provide this to them in an easy to use platform, complete with downloadable charts and graphs."
