    The Midwest Business Librarian Summit Committee is thrilled to announce the 2021 Midwest Business Librarian Summit (MBLS). MBLS is an annual event to gather together academic, corporate, and public business librarians to discuss outreach, instruction, resources, and all things business librarian! This year's Summit will be on October 11, 2021, at Purdue University. Learn more here!



    Registration for MBLS 2021 is now live. Click here to register.

    Note: Registration closes on October 4th.


    Call for Lightning Talks:

    Can you talk for just 5 minutes about what you've been doing as a business librarian? We're asking those registered for MBLS to apply to present a lightning talk! It could be an interesting project, a workflow improvement, a negotiation strategy, a resource discovery, an innovative approach to your job, or something completely different. As long as it relates to business librarianship, we at MBLS want to hear about it. The summit has grown substantially since last year, so we will include as many 5 min talks as possible. Send your idea along here. You only need your title and abstract at this point in the process.

    Lightning Presentation Call-Out Schedule:

    • September 19 - Submission Deadline
    • September 27 - Acceptance Announcement
    • October 4 - Slides Due
    • October 11 – MBLS

    Please send on any questions to Annette Bochenek at We look forward to a wonderful 2021 MBLS!
