Announcing CAPAL17 Student Bursary Recipient

From capalibrarians.org:

The Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians/l’Association Canadienne des Bibliothécaires Académiques Professionnels (CAPAL/ACBAP) is pleased to announce that LIS student, Carli Agostino (Western University), has been selected as the first recipient of the new CAPAL/ACBAP Bursary for Student Conference Attendance. Through this bursary, CAPAL/ACBAP strives to enrich the conference experience for both students and established professionals by reducing the costs of attendance for the student so they may, in turn, bring forth fresh perspectives to the LIS field, engage and build ideas with established professionals, and develop their professional relationships. Please join us in congratulating Carli; we look forward to seeing you at CAPAL17!

thomas-mj-troubleshooting-and-counter-and-licenses-oh-my-an-introduction-to-electronic-resources-librarianship-poster-created-20170113As new librarians, in this day and age, you will be hard-pressed to find a librarian position, particularly in academia that won’t involve electronic resources.  Yet many aspects of this growing part of our collections and the work that librarians and library staff do to make sure we have them and that they are usable by our patrons is completely unknown. Take some time out of your busy day to be introduced to some examples and types of key electronic resources, learn about what Electronic Resources Librarians (or those with responsibilities managing electronic resources) do all day, and some of the skills involved in doing that work.  The more you know about this part of every library’s collection the better you’ll be able to use them, show your patrons how to use them, and help your colleagues that work with them better able to help you. -Matt Thomas
