Abstract: This study examines the usefulness of Extel Financial, an international stock database, to academic institutions such as The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). A thorough survey was carried out with the HKUST’s faculty, second and third Year students in the Department of Finance to determine the usefulness of the database to the faculty’s research and to the students’ term projects. Comments on the key features of the two databases in Extel Financial, Company Research and Equity Research, were gathered from the surveys. The study reveals the features of Extel which are useful to the faculty and students. It shows Extel’s strengths and weaknesses and identifies areas of possible improvement for the database. The paper also discusses the role of library instruction when introducing a complex database such as Extel in a library.
