MeL and Gale Join ForcesWondering how libraries can help business grow? This study explores the partnership between Gale and the Michigan eLibrary to offer new resources to Michigan’s business owners. Sheryl Mase, Statewide Library Services Director at the Library of Michigan, noted, “I’m not sure the business community knew they could go to the library to find the information they needed in the first place. They likely would have gone to the Chamber of Commerce or the SBDC [Michigan Small Business Development Center].” With MeL providing business-building tools at the state level, funding concerns by libraries are reduced, and small businesses owners or entrepreneurs have the resources and guidance that they need.
