Library and Archival Associations Issue Joint Statement on Qualities of New Head of Library and Archives Canada

Some 19 Canadian library and archival associations have issued a joint statement on the qualities the new head of Library and Archives Canada should have. Daniel Caron resigned earlier this month from that position:
"Over the past week, the Canadian Library Association has collaborated with other national and provincial associations to consider the qualities we believe are necessary for a successful candidate to the position of Librarian and Archivist of Canada."

"A broad spectrum of associations has collaborated to produce and endorse a Joint Statement on Qualities of a Successful Librarian and Archivist of Canada. This statement is being distributed today to the Clerk of the Privy Council, the Minister of Canadian Heritage, and other key MPs and stakeholders."

"CLA members are encouraged to draft their own cover letters and forward them with copies of the joint statement to their MPs and to the Minister of Canadian Heritage."
For further background, see the Library Boy post of May 16 entitled Daniel Caron Resigns as Head of Library and Archives Canada.
