BRASS and Business Librarians on the Web and Social Media

BRASS New Business Librarians Group

BRASS New Business Librarians Group is an interest group of business librarians within their first five years of professional work. New Business Librarians Group meets online on Adobe Connect and also at ALA Annual. Their discussion in past years has focused on many "starting up" tasks such as introducing yourself and your services to your departments, seeking professional development for those starting out, and building professional networks. There is strong emphasis on networking and new business librarians supporting each other.

Business Reference Best Practices

Business Reference FAQs

A great way to identify relevant resources to answer your business reference questions. Access to resources will depend on institutional or individual subscriptions.

The original Business FAQ platform is hosted at the University of Pennsylvania Library. The membership is limited to the members of the Association of Business Library Directors. The Dartmouth meta-search allows searching across several schools' FAQs.

Several libraries such as Harvard Business School and Emory have migrated to Springshare's LibAnswers platform.
