Tri-Campus Business Librarians

This fall, UTSC librarians reorganized from a functions-based model to a subject model and I became the subject librarian for management, computer science, and math. At a conference in May, I was introduced to Laura Anderson from the Business Information Centre at Rotman. She offered to give me a quick overview of the most popular business resources. That meeting led to several other meetings, to which Mike Meth from UTM added his expertise. Since then our informal group has grown to include librarians working in closely related areas from Robarts and the Martin Prosperity Institute. These meetings have taught me who does what within business, data, GIS, government documents, and collection development areas at UTL and who to call when I am stumped by a question or request. Beyond UTL, Laura and Mike have also introduced me to an Ontario-wide business librarians group. I am certain that without the connections I have made all this would have taken me a long time to learn.
