Nov. 18, 2011 at the iSchool, University of Toronto, an all day event. Agenda Sign up at:
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.
