Duncan Smith, Information Services’ Chief Strategist for Public Libraries at EBSCO

Duncan Smith, the librarian-entrepreneur who founded NoveList and EBSCO Information Services’ Chief Strategist for Public Libraries shares the results of more than a year of focus on entrepreneurship and libraries.

Expanding on the themes highlighted in Alex Lazarow’s “Beyond Silicon Valley: How Start-Ups Succeed in Unlikely Places,” (Harvard Business Review, March/April 2020), Duncan suggests roles for libraries to play in assisting their users in developing innovative solutions and embracing an entrepreneurial mindset themselves.
