Electronic databases full of relevant, up-to-date magazine and newspaper articles, print materials from well-known authors and research centers, and links to valuable, selected Internet websites provide both general and specific information on hundreds of topics, from taxes to licenses to marketing to training.
Electronic resources can be accessed 24/7 by anyone with a Lincoln City Libraries card. You can inquire about specific facts, figures, or addresses by phone or email or instant messaging. We can fax or mail you copies of forms, magazine articles, or other material. Most of the titles listed here can be checked out.
PRINT RESOURCESLaws and Taxes -- for example,
The following subscription databases and/or themed webliographies on the Lincoln City Libraries site can be used to access numerous articles and/or links to additional resources about Small Businesses on-line. The databases are resources the library has purchased for your use -- they are not available through a simple Internet search. Use your library card number for access to these paid databases. The webliographies below list dozens of librarian-selected free Internet sites for a wide variety of subjects -- for example, the Small Business Administration and the Census Bureau [If you have difficulty accessing or using the databases, please contact the Reference Department at 441-8530 for assistance.]
