EBSCO Add Databases To Help Patrons Answer Legal Questions

This press release came in this week via Information Today..


Libraries are busier than ever and patrons making legal decisions or looking to create or expand their small businesses need resources for their specific demands. Two new databases from EBSCO Publishing (www.ebscohost.com) are designed to help patrons help themselves answer legal questions and research small business issues. Legal Information Reference Center and Small Business Reference Center provide full text for many of the top consumer legal and small business reference books. These “do-it-yourself” resources provide patrons with the how-to instructions they need to independently address a wide-range of legal and business issues.

Legal Information Reference Center includes more than 320 full-text publications plus thousands of legal forms with more content being added on a regular basis. The database includes coverage of legal issues such as business law, personal finance and estate planning, family law, property and real estate, and rights and disputes.

Small Business Reference Center contains more than 500 full-text reference books, as well as more than 385 full-text magazines plus sample business plans, and videos. The database provides the everyday user with the necessary tools and detailed instructions to accomplish goals as varied as starting a business, buying or selling a small business, managing employees, writing a business plan, understanding legal information, and marketing a business.

Each database is presented with an easy-to-use interface that allows library patrons to easily search by subject or search specific books and other sources. Both databases include content from Nolo (www.nolo.com), a respected provider of legal information for consumers and small businesses
