Dear AAO Members,
You can find the French and English versions of the AAO's contribution to a Joint Statement on Qualities of a Successful Librarian and Archivist of Canada here. This document was prepared by a number of organizations and associations from the heritage stakeholder community of Canada and came out of the roundtable discussion on LAC and Canadian Heritage that was held May 17 in Ottawa. Thank you to Iona McCraith, who attended on the AAO's behalf. She was a great representative for all of us.
The AAO will be distributing this statement and, along with the CCA, we encourage our members to send a copy of the joint statement with a personalized cover letter to your local MP and MPP as well as the people listed in the spreadsheet.
A special note of thanks to Christina Nichols of the CCA and Nancy Marrelli for their hard work in preparing this document and involving the necessary parties.
