MRI University Reporter: Register & Login

About MRI University Reporter

MRI's University Reporter offers UofL students access to databases advertisers use to evaluate print and online publications. These databases include circulation, frequency, editorial profiles, rates, publication dates, closing dates, and audience demographics, as well as product/service/brand usage data collected from a national probability sample of 25,000+ households in MRI’s Survey of the American Consumer™. Please note that the most recent year of audience data is not available to academic libraries.

Authorized users may use the confidential and proprietary data solely for academic teaching and research purposes and in accordance with other individual license terms.
