Hoover Training

The Drexel Library has a Hoover’s Pro subscription for academic institutions.  They provide online resources for training at



When registering for a course, please sign up for Pro training.


The Training Page also  has links to self-guided training.  The brief videos “How To Search For Information With Hoover’s” and “How to Build a List with Hoover’s” are basic, but useful if you are unfamiliar with the subscription.

Note: Academic clients do not have access to Pro Plus or Pro Premium Tools.   If you attempt to access either Pro Plus or Pro Premium tools, you will get the following message:  “The Feature You Are Trying To  Access  Is Not Included With Your Subscription”

Please contact Cynthia Slater at the Drexel Library with any questions regarding Hoover’s.
