The Library also has a microfiche set containing the filings that companies submitted to the Securities & Exchange Commission for the fiscal years 1978-1997. The set itself does not include filings from all public companies and does not include all filings for the companies that are included. The filings that are included are 10Ks, 10Qs, and 8Ks with some other ones that were included to complete the picture of a company.
Some annual reports are included in this collection in those cases when the 10K is only complete with the annual report—often referred to as being "incorporated by reference."
This set was initially issued by Q-Data, and is available in the Science & Business Reading Room. Researchers will need to use the print Index to find the appropriate filings. Please Ask a Business Librarian about accessing this collection. There are databases that do have older SEC filings so please see the Additional Resources tab for a list of those.
It is also possible to order a copy of these reports via the Library's Duplication Services. Use the contact information below for a price quote. In the request form, include the link to this page along with the title of the appropriate collection in your request (e.g. SEC Filings), and note that the collection is part of Technical Reports, 4th Floor, Adams Building. Because the index is only available in print, contact Ask a Business Librarian to see if we have the company, year, and report desired (e.g. 10-k).
