  • 1.  MBLS 2022 Reminder

    Posted 06-06-2022 22:20

    The Midwest Business Librarian Summit is occurring in-person this year on Weds., July 13, at Purdue University. MBLS is an annual event to gather together academic, corporate, and public business librarians to discuss outreach, instruction, resources, and all things business librarian.

    Are you a business librarian or liaison, or someone who wants to know more about business librarianship? Join us for a day-long summit to discuss what we are all working on, what resources we love, teaching strategies, and more! MBLS is structured, but informal, with ample time to get to know one another.

    The summit is FREE and will include on-campus parking at Purdue. 



    Registration is now open! Please register for MBLS 2022 here: https://purdue.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eEwERnr9twygOsS



    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. You only need your title and abstract at this point in the process.

    ·       June 21 - Submission Deadline

    ·       June 29 - Acceptance Announcement

    ·       July 6 - Slides Due
