LibrariesNS Research Support Group Kickoff Meeting – Open Invitation
July 16th, 2015, 3:00pm
Room 301, Halifax Central Library, 5440 Spring Garden Road, Halifax
The ultimate goal of the LibrariesNS Research Support Group (RSG) is to increase the amount and quality of library research in Nova Scotia. This is a “Work in Progress” group, where members can learn about research, communicate research projects to each other, pose questions to the group, practice presentations, and create constructive feedback – drawing on the strengths of the group to raise the level of research for all.
This meeting will serve to introduce the group and to discuss the logistics of starting and holding discussions, calling group members together for face-to-face meetings, and the collection of resource materials that will be of use to all group members.
Meeting space provided through the generous support of Halifax Public Libraries!

Coming to a public library near you this July, “Bizarre Bazaar”! Join us for a family fun, interactive and comedic play with the Panadream Puppet Theatre, www.panadreamtheatre.com. This Marionette Puppet Show tour is organized and hosted by the Council on Youth Services in support of Children’s Summer Reading Programs, and partially sponsored by the Nova Scotia Library Association (Professional Support and Development Fund).
About the Show: Bizarre Bazaar is an interactive and comedic play with string marionettes, hand puppets and other props. The show is a series of vignettes woven together. It is an interactive experience and is intended to engage children in creativity and theatre, and can be performed in both English and French. The show is a 45- 60 minute live marionette performance and has been performed in libraries around Canada.
we are thrilled with the response to the original call for proposals for the 2015 NSLA/LBANS/ANSM/CNSA joint conference, “Public Places, Community Spaces: Connecting Nova Scotia s Archives, Libraries and Museums”!
However, we’ve heard that the original deadline was very tight, especially with the spring season being filled with other conferences, meetings, and similar time-intensive commitments. We listened to that feedback, and are happy to report that the deadline for proposals has been extended to June 26, 2015. Please check our Session Proposals for more information on submitting your proposal.
