Dear colleagues,

For those of you who graduate today -- warmest congratulations. You are 
terrific; you are distinctive; and you will make a difference. I look 
forward to watching your progress as professionals and scholars in the 
years to come.

For those of you who are employers, may I commend to you most highly the 
gifted, proactive, thoughtful new professionals who are joining the 
"Dalhousie MLIS" ranks today. My colleagues and I in the School of 
Information Management have been privileged to teach, and to learn with, 
these splendid new professionals. Many of them are members of the SIM 
LinkedIn group -- please review their professional profiles at

Educating effective professionals is a collective endeavour. For all of 
you who have helped our students and graduates in so many ways, from 
teaching, marking, mentoring, advising, supervising job placements, 
etc., my deepest thanks.

Warm wishes to all,
Fiona B.
