One good source for general information is the online "Encyclopedia of American Industries" found on the Alabama Virtual Library ( as a part of the "Gale Virtual Reference Library." This three-volume (in print) resource provides detailed, comprehensive information on a variety of industries in every realm of American business.  There are more than 1,000 detailed profiles of the manufacturing and service industries (primary materials industries, paper & allied products, transportation are examples of industry types). "Encyclopedia of American Industries" is an excellent source for students doing business research at the high school or college level.
