Jeff Suchanek Presents at Session on Social Entrepreneurship:

The Professional Development Center at Wake Forest University recently sponsored a session entitled,
“Social Entrepreneurship in Action: Digitizing Our Cultural History.”  Jeff Suchanek, Archivist in Special Collections and presenters from Wake Forest University and the University of North Carolina, Greensboro comprised a panel exploring the link between digitized unique collections and social entrepreneurs who use entrepreneurial principals to identity and remedy a social issue or problem and improve life for their communities or the world.

Librarians apply social entrepreneurship every day by providing literacy training, information, education and spaces for the community to gather. Technology now enables libraries to digitize their unique collections in order to make vital materials available to everyone. Learn how three libraries identified a need to preserve and provide access to their community history along with lesson plans and study guides for educators, students and all citizens.
