Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Entrepreneurship is “fast emerging as a transformational megatrend of the 21st century” with “capacity to reshape economies and industries throughout the world” (Entrepreneur, 2015). This panel of academic and public librarians will explore the intersections of entrepreneurship, libraries, innovation, and communities. We will discuss best practices and predictions toward the future. How will libraries help shape the future of entrepreneurship? How will entrepreneurs shape the future of libraries? This session is intended to be useful for all types of special, corporate, public and academic libraries.
