(See Meeting Announcement http://www.loc.gov/flicc/ma/2008/ma0820.pdf)
 
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).
