Boots on the Ground: Making Academic Libraries Work for Veterans Program Moscone Convention Center
3018 (W)
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.
