At this time, no such position appears on any hiring plan in the library.
Primary responsibility for entrepreneurship activities falls to the Business and Economics Librarian,
who also serves on the advisory board.
The library does house the student researcher position (described above), which is funded by the
Kentucky Small Business Development Center.
There has been talk about having an entrepreneurship librarian and a business librarian, but with the
current budget, I don’t see that happening.
We do have a proposal for a liaison position to support cross-disciplinary programs and centers for
excellence. Most of these have elements of entrepreneurship in their curricula.
