Whether they know it or not, small businesses in Maryland now have computerized access to most of the world's business and science publications. They are able to talk about their business problems with a nationwide network of 10,000 technical experts.
And while companies such as General Dynamics Corp., IBM Corp. and McDonnell Douglas Corp. have been paying thousands of dollars for these services, they are available to Maryland companies for the low, low price of . . . zilch.
Under a new program unveiled yesterday, Maryland's six Small Business Development Centers are offering their clients the services of a Minneapolis company called Teltech Resource Network Corp. Teltech maintains a staff of librarians who help clients conduct computer searches through more than 1,000 business and science data bases. And the company keeps on retainer a network of 10,000 technology experts, covering more than 2,400 technical disciplines, available for confidential telephone consultations.
