Division library is special.

In 1998, the Special Libraries Association (SLA) conducted a study analyzing the Fortune 500, to determine if companies ranked higher on the list had a corporate library or information center. The study revealed that 90% of the top 50 companies had a library.

What if your company does not have a corporate or R&D library/information center? How can your organization become more like a Fortune 500 company? By contacting the Rubber Division's Library and Information Service, of course.

The Rubber Division Library and Information Service provide a myriad of services to clients. Some of the services include literature searches for technical and business intelligence, providing technical documents and articles, obtaining market research data and providing Rubber Division technical meeting papers. Many documents can be electronically mailed to you as a PDF file. Division members receive a significant discount on library services.

I have a thorough understanding of scientific and technical principles; prior to attending library school, I was a testing laboratory chemist for a plastics company. My education includes a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Akron and a Master of Library Science degree from Kent State University. After graduating from Kent State, I was an information services analyst at an executive re cruiter where I provided business and market research information. I have been the librarian for the Rubber Division since February 2002.

My clients include law firms, testing laboratories, tire and rubber companies, and consultants. Some of the recent projects 1 have worked on include: Market and technical data for EPDM non-black fillers, an overview on hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS), and using ground tire/recycled rubber as a filler for plastics. In short, 1 have helped many firms find information quickly and efficiently at a reasonable price. Please contact me at 330-972-7197 or laursen@uakron.edu. I will help your business perform like a Fortune 500 company in no time at all.
