The library has been working to engage students, faculty, and our community with innovation and entrepreneurship initiatives for the last several years, including supporting a student-run makerspace. In cooperation with IEEE, we are hosting an event this September to catalyze campus-wide entrepreneurship and innovation efforts in partnership with the new Center for Excellence in Entrepreneurship and Innovation on campus. The event is a panel fielding audience questions, with entrepreneurs, faculty and a librarian, covering intellectual property and technology transfer, student and alumni entrepreneurship, library resources, and campus and community support for aspiring innovators and entrepreneurs in any field of study, with the goal of expanding outreach beyond business and engineering majors. Our librarians have taken a leadership role in staging this event to highlight the key role the library can play in supporting people who want to innovate or start their own businesses.
