“The Canadian Federation of Library Associations / Fédération canadienne des associations de bibliothèques (CFLA/FCAB) endorses the American Library Association (ALA) statement issued January 30, 2017 defending library core values and condemning recent events in their country. CFLA/FCAB champions values that include access to information, privacy, democracy, equity, diversity and inclusion, intellectual freedom, and social responsibility. Libraries are safe and inclusive spaces that build social capital and support discovery and creation. CFLA/FCAB and Canadian libraries stand together in unity with our American library colleagues in support of welcoming and inclusive communities. “

 

The ALA statement can be found at http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2017/01/ala-opposes-new-administration-policies-contradict-core-values .

OLA Superconference 2017 – February 1-4

OLA Supersoncerfence 2017 brand

The theme of OLA Superconference 2017: All In/Le tout pour tout

The OLA Superconference is almost here!

The theme of the 2017 edition is “All in. / Le tout pour le tout.”

As the organizers explain:

“We are a profession that welcomes all, supports all, serves all. We’re techies, readers, curators, storytellers, humanitarians. Our doors are open, our lights are on, we believe in what we do, and we aren’t holding back. More than ever, our enthusiasm, passion, commitment, and courage are needed.

The chips are down, but we’re not shying away from risks.

We are all in.

 

CFLA-FCAB AGM - February 1

CFLA-FCAB AGM – February 1

We know that a number of people from the Nova Scotia library community will be attending the conference. While you are there, consider attending the CFLA-FCAB Annual General Meeting on February 1. NSLA President, Cindy Elliott, will be there to represent our interests, and it would be great to have NSLA members and others from the region in attendance.
