Thanks for asking! The W. Dale Clark Main Library downtown (215 S 15th St.) holds our best collection of periodicals for stock and financial research. A few other locations still subscribe to solid resources like Barrons', Investors Business Weekly, and magazines like Kiplinger's Personal Finance, but at Main you'll still find S&P stock and bond guides and newsletters like DRIP Investor and Timer Digest. We also have backfiles of financial periodicals, older Moody's manuals, and some microfilm that may be useful for historic stock research. If you need help finding the information you're looking for or want to check for a particular resource, give us a call at 402-444-4800 or contact me directly at msorensen@omahalibrary.org. 

Some changes will be coming soon that will keep the newest issues of our financial newsletters in-house, then allow the back issues to take requests to other locations the way that other magazines currently do. So if you're interested in a particular periodical but can't easily make the trip downtown, that may be of use in a few months. 

I'm proud of our physical collections, but our digital subscriptions are more accessible and more useful for most customers in need of stock analysis and research. The library offers remote access to Value Line for our cardholders, and Gale's Business Insights: Global has started including some fairly robust financial information. 

You may also wish to test out some of the free (or ad-supported) sites like Rank and FiledGoogle Finance, and Yahoo! Finance, though obviously I have a bias toward library resources. 

Thanks again for asking, and thanks for using AskOPL!
