On October 17, 2016 the Conference for Entrepreneurial Librarians will present Imagine the Next! In this 5th edition of our celebration of the entrepreneurial side of librarians, our conference keynote and concurrent presenters will imagine what’s next in libraries: how innovative librarians envision their next programs, projects, library renovations, patron services, streamlined processes or anything else library-related.
In two keynote addresses architect Kevin Huse (http://www.ratiodesign.com/team/kevin-huse-aia) will discuss what’s next in library renovation and author Richard Moniz (https://jwu.academia.edu/Dr RichardMoniz) will share mindfulness practices to support innovation.
Previous editions of the conference have received rave reviews from attendees who have come from a broad array of geographic and library backgrounds. An important reason to attend is to network with like-minded entrepreneurial librarians.
The Conference for Entrepreneurial Librarians is organized by librarians at the University of N. Carolina at Greensboro and Wake Forest University. The full schedule and additional conference information is available at entrelib.org.
