Theme: Agility in Business Librarianship
Location: 2012 SLA Annual Conference – Chicago, IL
Date/Time: Monday July 16th – 4:00pm – 5:30pm
Deadline for submissions: 12 March 2012

The Business and Finance Division of SLA is providing an opportunity for business librarians to share ideas and develop research collaborations.  Over the last few years both public and private organizations have had to make difficult choices among people, services and resources. We are looking for case studies or practical applications on how business librarians are integrating “agility” into their work including:

  • Services or standards that promote agility
  • Agile approaches to business information education
  • Assessment of agile initiatives
  • Librarian / faculty / college collaboration
  • Utilizing new technologies for increased staff agility
  • Business information education in multi-disciplinary contexts
  • Outsourcing / insourcing / co-sourcing / offshoring / multisourcing services/resources
  • Using agility to promote business research services

Help your colleagues learn from your work, both successful and unsuccessful.

This session is sponsored by the Business & Finance Division and the College & University Business Libraries Section.
