Hi all,

A new issue of the APLA Bulletin is up at

This issue contains the text of the Merit Award winners speech along with the introductory remarks;  Amanda Tiller tells us about assessing the reference desk at the QEII Library at Memorial University; we pay tribute to Douglas Lochhead and the winners of this year’s Hackmatack awards; Ian delivers his parting shots as Editor and lots more!


As a reminder: the deadline for submissions for the next issue is September 1 – please send all your news and views to your provincial VP.
