Entrepreneurial Library Program
The Entrepreneurial Library Program (ELP) supports the mission of the Sheridan Libraries of the Johns Hopkins University by serving as an incubator for the development of highly customized library and information services, adding to the Hopkins libraries reputation for innovation, and providing financial support to the Sheridan Libraries.
ELP serves both nonprofit and for-profit organizations and individuals within and beyond the JHU community. While long known for its entrepreneurial spirit and business enterprises, the Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University formally established the Entrepreneurial Library Program (ELP) in 1999.
ELP began as a way to: build sustainable revenue-generating mechanisms to support the libraries; and innovate new services. The program started by designing and implementing tailor-made library and information services. An important defining characteristic of ELP has been to develop pilot programs to test services in new areas before implementing longer term programs.
