The Ex Libris Association is participating at the Atlantic Provinces
Library Association Annual Conference in May at Fredericton, N.B. for the
first time. ELA is the national Canadian association for long-time
workers and retirees whose careers have been in libraries, archives,
publishing houses and adjunct areas. Its major interest has been in the
history of these fields but it is now also looking at current issues.
In the exhibits area at the Fredericton Conference ELA will be selling
copies of its publications and ELA T-shirts and distributing its
membership forms. These - plus a treat or two - can be found at the
Canadian Library Association booth in space kindly provided to ELA by CLA.
Staffing the ELA exhibit will be Kathryn Howe, Dalhousie MLIS 2006.
In addition there will be a session on Saturday May 27 from 15.30 to 17.00
to discuss ELA, its programmes and how it can serve the Atlantic region.
Leading this discussion will be Sheila Laidlaw, former Director of
Libraries, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, and Norman Horrocks,
Professor Emeritus, School of Information Management, Dalhousie
University, Halifax, and Editorial Consultant, Scarecrow Press, Lanham,MD.
All Conference attendees are invited to come and join in the discussions -
ELA membership is not required although membership forms will be
available. For any additional, advance information please write to
