Demistifying the Latest Business Literature 
 
Designed to keep federal librarians and their agency training
colleagues informed about the latest business literature and provide the
chance to share ideas with colleagues, this half-day session will offer
an orientation to Business Book Review, a new product offered by Ebsco,
that summarizes cutting-edge business literature in an easy to
understand and immediately useful fashion.

The program will focus on the business concept of positioning and will
explore how this concept might be relevant in the federal government.

Business Book Review is a weekly service that summarizes new books and
allows subscribers to access a large archive of existing summaries.
Summaries are provided by business and management practitioners who
compare and contrast various business theories and trends within their
summaries.
 
The Business Book Review subscription is about $50 a year per federal
librarian and may be paid for from FEDLINK training funds or with a
government credit card.

FEDLINK plans to pair this product with a blog that will be available
to federal librarians only. The purpose of this blog will be to address
the topics (and books) that are covered by the Business Book Review
service and discuss them in the context of our environment(s).

Can’t attend and still interested in the product? Call Georgette
Harris at 202-707-4850 for more details.
