Abstract

The growth of the freelance economy has changed the overall business landscape aswell as the landscape of the overall labor force, and these changes have led to the proliferation of co-workingand shared workspaces. Public business librarians can engage this important constituency by embedding services in external co-working spaces, and this column explores how this strategy benefits public libraries as well as strategies for embedding library services in co-working spaces.
