Hello all,


Entrepreneurship and Libraries Conference 2020 explores how libraries and librarians support entrepreneurship in their communities and campuses.

2.    Lightning talk (7 minutes)

o    Based on a model used at the USASBE conferences, these sessions provide opportunities for librarians to demonstrate an active learning technique or an instructional/programming module in front of a small group, and then discuss it with the group.
