Mission Statement or Market Share
When: Dec. 1, 2006, 8:30 am -  3:30 pm

As the business model increasingly pervades the academy, librarians
find themselves responding to a mentality that embraces the "bottom
line." The 2006 ACRL/NY annual Symposium "Commercialization and the
Academic Library: Mission Statement or Market Share" explores the
commercialization of higher education, its impact on academic
librarians, and the challenges and opportunities they face.

This symposium presents compelling issues and answers for all academic
librarians and library administrators.  Poster sessions illustrate
real-world responses as well.

Come and hear an exciting group of speakers address these timely and
important issues.
