Entrepreneurial course taught by Professor Willingham
LIS 490/590, Civic Entrepreneurship and Public Institutions
This course will prepare students to be civic innovators in libraries, other public institutions and community-based organizations. The course content will come primarily from the civic and social entrepreneurship literature and case studies of innovative and entrepreneurial librarians who are redefining the role of libraries in relation to the civic and social life of their communities. Students will gain a new understanding of how entrepreneurial public institutions can build the civic capacity needed to develop new approaches to public problems. Students will contribute to a new stream of research on civic entrepreneurship within the professions of the library, nonprofit, community-based, and public institutions, and civic-minded individuals.
