NEW VENUE

One-Day Symposium   *SIGN-UP TODAY*

LIMITED SEATING

In response to recent developments in academic libraries in Ontario and elsewhere, academic librarians are invited to gather to discuss the challenges facing the profession of academic librarianship today.

This one-day Symposium will serve as an opportunity to hear stakeholders’ views of the profession as well as an opportunity for academic librarians to explore ways of re-affirming the legitimacy and the integrity of academic librarianship both now and as we move forward in the future.

The Symposium will be organized around three main themes: library education and curriculum, the role of professional associations and the value of professional accreditation, and labour issues.
