Caltech Library Resources for The Linde Institute

The Caltech Library website hosts a comprehensive repository of information for research of interest to scholars and students who work with The Ronald and Maxine Linde Institute of Economic and Management Sciences. It provides a one-stop access point for research needs in quantitative finance, business management, and entrepreneurship.

A key resource available under the Financial & Economic Data Sources tab is data from the Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP), purchased by The Linde Institute for Caltech faculty and students. Specifically, researchers have access to the CRSP US Stock Databases, which contain daily and monthly market and corporate action data for securities with primary listings on the NYSE, NYSE MKT, NASDAQ, and Arca exchanges and also include CRSP broad market indexes. CRSP databases are characterized by their comprehensive corporate action information and highly accurate total return calculations. Caltech's CRSP Index Database subscription contains five groups of CRSP indexes: CRSP Stock File Indexes, CRSP Cap-Based Portfolios, CRSP Indexes for the S&P 500 Universe, CRSP Treasury and Inflation (CTI) Indexes, and the CRSP Select Treasury Indexes.

The portal also features sample business plans, links to a variety of resources on subjects such as venture capital and finance, links to helpful government and international resources, and much more.
