2022 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 Wed, July 13, 2022, at Purdue University

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. 

Please send any questions to Heather Howard, or Annette Bochenek,


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.

Lightning Presentation Call-Out Schedule:

  • June 21 - Submission Deadline
  • June 29 - Acceptance Announcement
  • July 6 - Slides Due
  • July 13 – MBLS
