The New Business Gateway

PPL’s  Business and Government Team would like to introduce the new  Business Gateway  (also linked from PPL’s homepage).

New additions to this page include:

  • LegalForms (Thousands of legal forms;Official, State Specific, Federal, Business, Personal, Real Estate and General forms covering hundreds of legal subjects and issues)
  • DemographicsNow – Featuring  Demographics – Access a demographic report on any geography – or compare multiple geographies – for information including income, housing, race, age, education, retail spending, consumer expenditures, businesses and more.  Maps – Access the maps tab to view a simple map or use the advanced mapping tools for thematic coloring or additional customization of your maps. And 2010 Census Information – Access the 2010 census files as they are released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Look here to for easy access to other data files in the future.
  • Small Business Resource Center – small business management resources via a combination of periodicals and reference content. Includes business plan samples from the Business Plans Handbook
  • Business Insights Global (which all Marvel libraries will migrate to in late July from Business Company Resource Center).

All the familiar resources are still here, e.g. ReferenceUSA, ValueLine, Business Source Complete and Morningstar Investment Research Center.  Also, the “FURTHER RESOURCES’  links on the right hand side of the page will take users to the “old” business research page – should there be any links  you are accustomed to using.
