Members Benefits

The Business Librarians Association acts as a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas. We facilitate networking opportunities, co-operation and participation in joint activities. Below are some of the benefits for our members.

Resources

The BLA maintains a collection of resources created by and for our members. This includes the Business Librarian’s Toolkit, a list of databases subscribed to by our members, and presentations from all of our events.

Annual Meeting

Each year BLA holds a three-day conference hosted by a member institution. The conference consists of keynote speakers and presentations by members together with excellent food and drink. Each year a different theme is adopted and explored throughout the event. The BLA also holds an Annual General Meeting (AGM) during the conference and the meeting is valued as an opportunity for members to engage with and hear from the Committee.

Training Events

The BLA committee organises and subsidises training events for members on topics of agreed mutual interest. In the last few years these have included: the popular Social Media training, led by Andy Tattersall of the University of Sheffield; and training days on market research and financial databases.

Community

LIS-Business is the lively mailing list of the BLA. It provides a forum for discussion between organised events. Members principally use the list to seek advice from colleagues and share their experience.
