College & University Business Libraries Section

The College & University Business Libraries (CUBL) Section provides a forum for members to focus on issues related to all areas of academic business librarianship, including research, collection development, reference, instruction, and service activities. Meetings and programs focus on practical and theoretical issues that concern business librarians in the college and university settings.
