On September 18th, 2010, the Associated Alumni of the Dalhousie School of Information Management held its 5th Annual Silent Auction during the annual conference of the Nova Scotia Library Association / Library Boards Association of Nova Scotia. The auction was a great success, yielding over $600 in funds.
