For more information, see NAICS and SIC on the Business Research guide.

One of the easiest ways to identify the NAICS or SIC for an industry is to look up a company in that industry using one of the business databases, e.g., Business & Company Resource Center or LexisNexis Academic. The descriptive information about the company almost always includes a listing of the industry or industries in which the company is engaged.

NOTE: NAICS replaced SIC in 1997, but some databases still include SIC codes in the listings.
