Canadian Library Association CLA Digest for November 2014
In the most recent issue, there are a number of items that caught my interest:
- Royal Society review highlights opportunities for CLA: "The Canadian Library Association (CLA) welcomes the report released today by the Expert Panel of the Royal Society of Canada. This report, The Future Now: Canada's Libraries, Archives, and Public Memory, acknowledges the important contributions that libraries and archives make to our communities and to our country while emphasizing the need for greater public awareness about the role of these institutions."
- Now available: October 2014 issue of IFLA Journal: "IFLA Journal is an international journal publishing peer reviewed articles on library and information services and the social, political and economic issues that impact access to information through libraries."
- Disability Awareness Training for Library Staff (Webinar, Thursday, November 27, 2014): "Creating an attitude and atmosphere that values people with disabilities is foundational to creating an inclusive library. Two contemporary ways of looking at disability and their relationship to the work of library staff will be presented in this webinar. It is the integration of the principles and practices of these two models that supports library staff to create physical and cognitive accessibility, and to interact with patrons with disabilities in a supportive way.
