EBSS Program at ALA Annual 2015: “Boots on the Ground: Making Academic Libraries Work for Veterans”

Saturday, June 27th
1:00-2:30 PM
The Moscone Center, Room 3018 (W)

Presenters:
Eduardo Tinoco, Associate University Librarian and Business Librarian, University of Southern California, University Park Campus
Jared Hoppenfeld, Business Librarian / Assistant Professor, Texas A&M University

Description:
Large numbers of veterans enrolled in academic institutions using educational benefits provided through the “Post-9/11 GI Bill” remain an invisible library constituency. To highlight what we do to help, current librarian and former U.S. Army Ranger, Eduardo Tinoco, presents an environmental scan of veteran services at academic institutions. Then, Jared Hoppenfeld, a business librarian, describes library support given to the national Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program, designed to create small business owners.
