Limited Capacity seats available

There are many opportunities for libraries to explore ways to support communities’ and organizations’ economic and business goals. Municipalities have goals for economic development. Universities have plans for commercialization. Companies have business development targets. But are we doing everything we can to support these important objectives? The possibilities go beyond reference and collections, but it can be difficult to know how to proceed. This session will be a facilitated discussion with attendees to explore practical courses of action to support the information needs of our economic communities.
