Announcing CLEO Transition to Rutgers SMLR

It gives us great pleasure to announce CLEO has a new home at Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR). The library is an excellent addition to an already renowned school in the field employee ownership. As the largest online library on employee ownership, CLEO deepens the resources and extends the global reach of the already established research and education programs offered by the school, including the professorship, symposia, and fellowships. It is integrated into the schools employee ownership center where it will continue expanding.

It has been the FED’s honor to have collaborated with the Aspen Institute’s Business & Society Program and Employee Ownership Foundation since October 2008 with the initial launch of CLEO. For eight years CLEO resided at Aspen Institute’s and grew to have more than 700 teaching materials, including videos, cases, syllabi, teaching modules, and reading collections, with thousands of downloads per year by researchers, teachers, and companies. Every year there have been valuable contributions by academics and, as education continues to advance into the digital realm, online libraries such as CLEO are a key part of the future of education.
