BAHAMAS: GB Port Authority launches free digital library

#Freeport, GB, September 6, 2018 – Bahamas – As part of its continued effort to digitize key business processes and customer-related information, Grand Bahama Port Authority (GBPA) has launched GBPA Library, a virtual document library of information relevant to the company, its licensees, and the community.

The growing library, which currently holds over 160 documents, was created to give GBPA employees, licensees, and members of the general public quick access to official papers such as the Hawksbill Creek Agreement, zoning laws and business license applications.  For ease of use, the database organizes documents into five main categories: licensing, byelaws, forms, covenants, and restrictions.  Users may choose to browse through the pages of the site’s directory or locate specific entries via keyword search terms.

Free to the public, GBPA Library brings important documents together in one easy-to-access location, saving users the hassle of scouring the internet or visiting GBPA headquarters to gain access to them. The GBPA Library does not require registration and gives users instant access to the full text of each document.

GBPA executives believe the digital library will be a valuable resource to the public as the collection holds information relevant to existing GBPA licensees as well as potential foreign and local investors.

“The launch of GBPA Library is just one more way we are adding value to our licensees and streamlining our customer support,” said GBPA President Ian Rolle.  “Through this platform, we are providing immediate access to essential documents—particularly those that were once difficult to find—and allowing users to download and print these pages right from the comfort of their homes.”
