About the ELC

The ELC offers free online conferences and workshops on how libraries and librarians support entrepreneurship in their communities and campuses. ELC planners include a diverse mix of public, special, and academic librarians and partners from several countries. The ELC is for and by information professionals who support and believe in the power of inquiry and information to transform lives and support entrepreneurial endeavors.

While the ELC leadership is international, the ELC is officially hosted by BLINC, the business librarianship section of NCLA. Since its founding in 2003, BLINC has been a community of public, academic, and special librarians who value networking, supporting each other, and offering frequent and free workshops.
