Let BPL's Small Business Resource Guide Help Start or Expand Your Business
According to the Alabama Small Business Development Consortium, the first three steps to starting a business are: prepare a written business plan complete with financial statements; decide whether you wish to operate as a sole proprietorship, partnership or corporation; and establish a source of adequate and reliable financing. These are daunting but necessary steps to making your dream a reality. To help you get started, Birmingham Public Library offers access to resources to help you start your business as well as information to manage and grow your business.
Some of the resources we offer are listed in our online Small Business Resource Guide. This guide provides you with an overview of materials you can use to help with market research, write a business plan, contact other agencies that help entrepreneurs, etc. The lists of references contained in the Small Business Resource Guide are not exhaustive, so in order to find out all we have to offer, visit the Business, Science, & Technology Department on the third floor of the Central Library.
