BLINC: Business librarianship in north carolina

BLINC is a community of public, academic, and special librarians who value networking, supporting each other, and offering frequent and free workshops

We focus on how libraries support community engagement, economic development, entrepreneurship, small business, nonprofits, job hunting, and business education. However, many of our members are not business librarians. We are a welcoming and inviting group. 

Every year since we formed in 2003, BLINC has met for free, quarterly workshops open to allWe gather in different cities each time. The workshops feature peer-training, peer-mentoring, discussions, resource sharing, and sometimes outside-experts.

BLINC uses a Google Group to allow its members to communicate with each other (share news, ask questions, recruit a project partner, etc.). If you would like to be added, just email one of the officers (see below).
