The SRDS database provides valuable data about thousands of media sources including: contact information, advertising rates, circulation information (for print publications), audience size data, and web site metrics (data on web site visitors, page views, average stay, etc.). The Library's subscription to the SRDS database provides access to the following SRDS publications:
*Please note: While this database does not include advertising rates for specific television or radio stations, it does gives SQAD cost-per-points (CPP) for Metro Market areas. Multiply the CCP times the Arbitron rating (for radio) or Nielsen rating (for TV) to determine the cost of an ad. You can also use CPP to calculate CPM - see the media planning calculators in the box below.
Please note: each of these sources offers some advertising rate information, but rates are not always available for every listing.
