Countdown to the Conference

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Business Libraries are special in their own way. They offer a unique set of services which differentiate them from other academic libraries. On the collection front, in addition to scholarly journals and books, business libraries provide for access to data (economic, corporate, social, etc.), news, regulations, reports and analysis to its specialist and demanding user community. The collection of business libraries cover subjects that are as varied as in a public library and include business studies, entrepreneurship, social sciences, philosophy, psychology, literature, pure and applied sciences, urban planning, health, education, history, and so on. The user community is diverse and varied and includes faculty, students, researchers, academic/teaching assistants, startup entrepreneurs, consultants, corporate executives, alumni, and so on.

The changes in the ecosystem of business libraries have been quite dramatic and fast paced in the last decade. Business and management education is itself undergoing several changes, emerging economies are evolving into large markets for businesses, ecommerce is penetrating untapped markets around the world, and technology developments are not only impacting consumer behavior but also leading the way to innovate new business models.
