The library received funding through a grant to the College from the Coleman Foundation (www.colemanfoundation.org) to purchase the initial one year subscription to the Small Business Resource Center Database and almost 200 print books on entrepreneurship. Special thanks to Charlie Nagelschmidt collaborating with Greg Morgan (Development), Dave Binch (VITC) Cinse Bonino (CIP) and Marie Kascus (MIC) to make this special collection available to the Champlain College community.

Entrepreneurs launching a new business need help with all aspects of selecting and operating a business including information gathering, start-up, writing a business plan, financing, marketing and advertising, management, human resources, accounting, taxes, knowing the law, growing the business, franchising and much more. Titles included in this collection reflect the broad range of resources needed to support Champlain’s BYOBiz Program and entrepreneurship throughout Vermont and beyond. Many of the books selected are practice based and intended to jump-start and sustain any fledgling entrepreneur. The global impact of entrepreneurship is reflected in a number of the titles included in this specialized collection of entrepreneurial resources. This print collection is physically located in the Miller Information Commons and virtually accessible via the library/college Web Page through the library flickr site below:


The Coleman Foundation entrepreneurship collection is our May New Book Display.

Come to the main floor of the Miller Information Commons on Tuesday May 13th at 3:30 for a reception with the Business Division to showcase this special collection to the entire college community.
