About: Reimagined by BLINC, executed nationally.

In 2019, BLINC was approached by the original organizers of the Entrepreneurial Librarians Conference to ask if this conference was something we, as business librarians, would be interested in taking on.

Since its founding in 2003 BLINC has always been a community of public, academic, and special librarians who value networking, supporting each other, and offering frequent and free workshops.

Through our planning work, members of BLINC have reached out to their networks and beyond to help craft a new vision for the Entrepreneurship and Libraries Conference. The conference planning team includes public, academic, and special librarians from across the United States and Canada.

The ELC conference is for and by information professionals who support and believe in the power of inquiry and information to transform lives and support entrepreneurial endeavors.
