Hi everyone,
On behalf of Kathryn Rose, APLA President, I am writing to inform you that we currently have two candidates for the position on the APLA executive of VP New Brunswick, after our previous candidate stepped down.  The candidates are Courtney Boudreau and Victoria Volkanova and their bios are below.  As a result, I would ask that you vote via the link below to select your desired VP.  Voting will close at 5 pm (Atlantic time) on Wednesday, June 21st, 2017.  One vote per member and all votes will remain strictly confidential.

Courtney Boudreau is a limited-term librarian at Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick (DMNB). She provides research support and instruction services to DMNB students and faculty, and works collaboratively with colleagues at the Kellogg Library, and the Dalhousie Libraries to support initiatives remotely.

She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Information and Communication Studies at the University of New Brunswick (Saint John Campus, 2014) and her Master in Library and Information Science degree at the University of Western Ontario (2015). Courtney has an interest in how elementary and secondary school students’ scholarly research skills and library usage are preparing them for higher education. She is also interested in community outreach, A/V and new media, user experience, privacy and surveillance, the digital divide, open access, and mental health. Courtney sits on the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL) Communications Committee.

Victoria Volkanova has been working at the Université de Moncton since 2005.  She is currently a Reference and Scholarly Communications, DLI and Research Data Librarian, as well as Embedded Librarian with the Faculty of Science.
