Forsyth County Public Library introduces new online resources
Reference databases for small businesses, small engine repair

The Forsyth County Public Library is going small for some new programs.

Recently, the library announced its opening of the Small Business Reference Center and the Small Engine Repair Reference Center, two new eLibrary services made possible through a partnership with EBSCO Information Services. 

The small business center is intended to help get small businesses off the ground through a database that “will provide local business users with localized start-up kits and forms, demographic data and other valuable business resources.”

The database will include more than 400 full texts of magazines, journals and trade publications and more than 450 reference books, including do it yourself books.

The small engine center has information on more than 25 years of engine models through more than 5,000 reference books with original photos and illustrations included in a full collection of Clymer Repair manuals. 

The center has information for more than 90,000 repairs for chainsaws, tillers, lawnmowers, Jets Skis and other small engines. The database is part of the “Consumer and Automotive” section in the library’s eResources collection.

Both reference centers can be accessed by anyone with a library card at any computer at the library’s four locations or at
