MorningStar Resources @ your Library
Regional Library System offers Morningstar Investment Research Center on-line for cardholders
Just in time for Tax Season, cardholders of the Jackson-George Regional Library System will be able to get a Post-Tax Financial Tune-Up with Morningstar Investment Research Center at the online website.
Tax season can be an opportunity to evaluate financial decisions made during the past 12 months. Reviewing how investment choices affect taxes, ensuring objectives are being met, and possibly rebalancing a portfolio are all valuable post-tax exercises. However, finding the right blend of investments that take into account stage of life and investing objectives requires updated and comprehensive investment research.
This subscription service is offered free of charge to library patrons. Gain access to Morningstar at www.jgrls.org/morningstar.htm (see links below). A valid Jackson-George Regional Library card is required. To get a library card, visit any branch in the library system.
The library’s website provides 24-hour remote access to Morningstar Investment Research Center. With a library card, patrons can gain access to current stock and fund information from home or office. This service is available for one patron at a time.
To help people achieve their financial goals, the Library System offers free access to the high-quality, up-to-the-minute data of Morningstar Investment Research Center, which includes reports on more than 35,000 stocks, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds.
