Two new resources have been added to the GoWYLD.net suite. Gale LegalForms and Gale Business: Plan Builder. These were purchased with federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds through the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Both will be available until September 2022.
Create accurate, reliable legal documents with no hassle with Gale LegalForms. It offers Wyoming-specific “attorney forms” – officially approved forms actually used by law firms. Many of the forms and documents are available in Word and Adobe format so you just need to simply “fill in the blanks.”
Gale Business: Plan Builder
This resource for small businesses and entrepreneurs offers an engaging, step-by-step guided experience–complete with the information and tools needed to move through the entire business development life cycle. The program’s intuitive dashboard walks users through the five essential steps of business planning and explains what each activity is, why it is important in the overall process, and how to get started
Upcoming Gale webinars
Gale will provide webinars for Wyoming libraries to introduce these resources (times MDT).
