There are several different sources we use to find relevant information on M&A. The first and most useful tool is our Bloomberg terminal located just behind the Social Sciences/Management & Economics Help Desk on Level 1. Push the equity button and then type MA (merger and acquisition). You will access the biggest deals in the market and also the investment banks who are working on the deals such as Goldman Sachs, J.P Morgan, Lazard, etc. You will also see the price of the deal and the various industries that potentially want to merge or aquire.
Next, is VentureXpert. VentureXpert is specifically for private equity and venture capital and has access to major M&A and other Investment Banking transactions. VentureXpert can be accessed using Internet Explorer and 5 people can be logged in simultaneously.
Lastly, we have Privco which is exclusivly for private companies but features lots of Merger and Acqusition, venture capital, and private equity deals. To access it, go on our website at http://sites.lib.byu.edu/business
For more in depth information about Mergers and Acqusition you can also go to our website and log into Wall streetOasis It has tons of Information on M&A or you can browse through IbisWorld which is an industry research platform.
If you have more questions, please stop by the Business & Economics Help Desk on Level 1. Thank you for your question and good luck on your research!
