Maybe the easiest way to look into this via a library database is to start by searching for the company by name in the Mergent Online database.  The resulting company profile page will indicate if the company is public or private.  To look further into a company, you can search the Corporate Affiliations database by company name. The company profile page will include a full company hierarchy which should tell you if the company is a subsidiary and give you further details about where it falls in the company tree.  If you're looking for more information about a private or subsidiary company, please contact the business librarian.
