In case you hadn’t noticed, Passport GMID underwent a “refresh” in October… the database maintains all the same functionality, with a cleaner, less cluttered look, as well as more prominent breaking news and industry updates.
Use Passport’s more user-friendly search to find in-depth market research reports on fast-moving consumer goods, industries, countries, and companies– and be sure to check out the current trial for information on Canada’s Industrial sector and a preview of the new Passport Cities, which profiles 850 cities, available for a limited period – look under Coming Soon.

As an added feature, BSI will also search the additional collections of Hospitality & Tourism Complete, Regional Business News, and, AP NewsMonitor Collection.
Here’s a quick video on how to use BSI’s basic search.
