This is a conference paper from ALA Midwinter 2017.


This paper highlights the ways that three different libraries are working to support entrepreneurs in their community: a public librarian connected with city government to support a small business development center; a librarian from a private university worked with social entrepreneurs that want to transform the world with business; a librarian from a large public land-grant works with entrepreneurs across the campus including business incubators and business competitions. The work these librarians do highlights the many ways libraries support entrepreneurs through collaboration, vision, and partnership.
