With apologies for cross-posting:

CASLIS, the Canadian Association of Special Librarians and Information
Specialists, recognizes the need to address emerging issues and trends that
affect both the association and its members. With this in mind, CASLIS
created a Strategic Planning Task Force and has embarked on a strategic
planning process to help guide our association over the next three to five

The Strategic Planning Task Force developed a survey to help us identify who
our members are, what trends you face, and how we can face the future
together.  CASLIS members can expect to receive the survey in the mail over
the next few days. While our efforts are focussed on our members, we know
that our non-member colleagues in the librarian and information professional
community will also have valuable insights as we undertake this planning
process.  We ask that you take a few minutes to complete the survey,
available at, following
the links to the survey.  The deadline for completing the survey is August
26, 2002.

The Strategic Planning Task Force has posted some draft documentation on the
CLA website at  that you may wish to
view in conjunction with completing this survey.  These documents were
created as part of our work towards creating the CASLIS strategic plan.

Your time is valuable - the time you invest in completing this survey will
help strengthen our association and our profession. Please, help build a
better CASLIS.


CASLIS, l'Association canadien de bibliothèques et services d'information
specialisés, reconnaît le besoin d'aborder plusieurs points et tendances qui
peuvent influencer non seulement l'association mais également ses membres.
C'est pourquoi CASLIS a crée un comité de planification qui a comme but
d'établir un plan de trois à cinq ans.

Le comité de planification de CASLIS a développé un sondage pour nous aider
à identifier nos  membres, les tendances qui leurs affectent, et comment
nous pouvons addresser le futur ensemble.  Nos efforts sont concentrés sur
nos membres, mais nous reconnaissons que nos collègues peuvent aussi nous
aider pendant ce processus.

S'il vous plaît, prenez le temps pour lire le documentation disponible sur
notre site web pour compléter le sondage qui se retrouve à  La date limite pour
compléter le sondage est le 26 août 2002.

Votre temps est précieux et votre participation nous aiderons à renforcer
notre association et notre profession.

Information seems more and more to want to be free.  The problem is setting
it free without letting it run around without its pants on.
