Abstract

In this article, Edward Lim discusses the challenges and strategies he faced in his first year as the business liaison to the University of Connecticut’s School of Business. He captures the many communities formed by business librarians around a geographic region or topic, such as entrepreneurship. He notes publishing opportunities for business librarians. Lastly, Edward offers advice on professional development for those new and seasoned in business librarianship – mostly North American professional opportunities – from his perspective, having worked previously in Singapore, and Shanghai, China.
