Call for Speakers--CUBL Breakfast 2011

Call for Speakers--CUBL Breakfast 2011

We are currently planning the annual College and University Business Libraries (CUBL) Section breakfast for next year's SLA Annual Conference in Philadelphia and are looking for three (3) people interested in sharing their experiences or research with their colleagues.

This year's breakfast theme will be "Ready for the World: Preparing Business Students for the Future."

In what ways have you been working with business students to prepare them for work/life after graduation? Maybe you collaborate with a career services office to help students research the kind of job they want. Maybe you've developed a "certification" program for students. Do you work with experiential programs: student consulting groups, service learning groups, internships, international study, etc.? Perhaps you do outreach to corporate social responsibility or professional ethics initiatives in your business school. If so, please consider this opportunity to tell your colleagues about your experiences, best practices, and lessons learned!

If you are interested in speaking (15 minutes or so) on these or other topics related to the theme, please let me know no later than Friday, December 17, 2010.  (email: choller@illinois.edu)

I look forward to hearing from you!
