Library: Mission Statement or Market Share
When: Dec. 1, 2006, 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Where: Baruch College, 151 East 25th Street, New York, NY

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.

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