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. Submit your idea here. You only need your title and abstract at this point in the process.

  • June 20 - Submission Deadline
  • June 28 - Acceptance Announcement
  • July 7 - Slides Due
  • July 12 - MBLS
