 With more U.S. states — and all of Canada — legalizing recreational and 
medicinal cannabis use, and the global cannabis market expected to reach 90.4 
billion USD by 2026 (360iResearch), librarians and other information 
professionals have to use innovative methods and strategies for supporting 
cannabis-based businesses and entrepreneurs with their research needs. This 
workshop will include two keynote presentations to provide an overview of the 
industry as well as implications for entrepreneurs, particularly those from 
marginalized and underserved communities. The first keynote will be a 30-minute 
"state of the market" talk by Dr. Michele Scott, Senior Analyst: Cannabis at 
Mintel. The second keynote will be a 30-minute conversation on social equity 
issues between Hilary Yu and Timeka Drew, co-creators of the nonprofit Our 
Academy. A panel of entrepreneurs and industry experts as well as short talks 
from librarians and information professionals will round out the workshop. The 
Entrepreneurship & Libraries Conference is a service of BLINC: Business 
Librarianship in North Carolina, a section of the North Carolina Library 
Association. Get all the details at
