BLINC: Business Librarianship in North Carolina

BLINC logo

BLINC is the section of NCLA that focuses on supporting entrepreneurship, small business, nonprofits, and business education.
Every year since we formed in 2003, BLINC has met for free, quarterly workshops open to all. We meet in different cities each time. The workshops feature peer-training, peer-mentoring, discussions, and resource sharing.
BLINC uses a Google Group to allow its members to communicate with each other. If you would like to be added, just email Steve Cramer (see below).

BLINC winter workshop:
The event is free and everyone is welcome. The focus after lunch will be BLINC strategic planning for the next two years, so no worries if you want to leave after lunch (although you are welcome to stay in participate in our brainstorming).
