Cultivating Entrepreneurship in Academic Libraries- ACRL/NY

Registration is Now Open!

ACRL/NY Annual Symposium “Cultivating Entrepreneurship in Academic Libraries”

Friday, December 7, 2011

Academic librarians are under tremendous pressure to adapt to changes in technology, declining budgets, “re-skilling,” and cultural or institutional expectations. Through necessity and ingenuity, some librarians are adapting by seeking out new opportunities for collaboration, innovation and creative service offerings that meet our users’ evolving needs with limited resources. At ACRL/NY’s 31st annual symposium, we will explore how academic librarians can actively promote risk-taking and develop an entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial approach to service.

Come join the conversation!
