Hello Everyone,

The Council of Nova Scotia Archives asked if I might promote this to the
librarians out there who may also have small archival records within
their collection.

The notice below is about the CNSA upcoming conference. It is open to
nonmembers for the same price as members. Please contact Karen or the
CNSA office directly.

all the best
Joanne
