Midwest Business Librarian Summit

Midwest Business Librarian Summit

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 closed.

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 12 - Submission Deadline
  • September 20 - Acceptance Announcement
  • October 4 - Slides Due
  • October 11 - MBLS
