This March, 12 students in the Oberlin Business Scholars program traveled to New York City to meet with business leaders at companies such as Google, BBDO, BlackRock, and McKinsey, among others. The Oberlin Business Scholars program provides students with the skills, knowledge, and professional contacts to help them more successfully compete for jobs and internships across a wide range of business disciplines. The program began 14 years ago, thanks to a group of Oberlin alumni who believed students would benefit from learning what can be accomplished through businesses and other social enterprises.

Eboni Johnson, outreach and programming librarian, holds a hand to her ear as a student across the room reads literature written by bell hooks. The public read-in at Mudd Center’s academic commons honors this prolific writter during Women’s History Month. It also serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.

After a five minute delay to the start of the program, Public Services Librarian Kathleen Abromeit inches her way to the back of the conservatory library, then pauses. “Should we give it another five minutes,” she asks, looking around the room. She’s excited. After a two-year hiatus Abromeit will announce the library’s first Tiny Ref Desk Concert. The program’s return also serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.
