Description: 

Large numbers of veterans enrolled in academic institutions using educational benefits provided through the “Post-9/11 GI Bill” remain an invisible library constituency. To highlight what we do to help, current librarian and former U.S. Army Ranger, Eduardo Tinoco, presents an environmental scan of veteran services at academic institutions. Then, Jared Hoppenfeld, a business librarian, describes library support given to the national Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV) program, designed to create small business owners.

Hi all!  Here is my handout for Saturday's presentation.  Feel free to print ahead of time but I will also bring print copies.  See you there!

Greetings everyone,

I am looking forward to this session and thank the ACRL EBSS programing committee for the invitation.  Here is the hand-out that I prepared for the session.  I will have some hard copies for distribution. 

In addition, I created a page of additional information (pretty much the hand-out in web form) and can be accessed by clicking on the ALA logo found on my page:  http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~etinoco/ 

Safe travels,
