Hi Everyone,


I would like to form an interest group on government information in Atlantic Canada.  As the Nova Scotia Legislative Librarian I am becoming more and more concerned about access to government information and I think an interest group might help put the situation in perspective.  There is a lot of information out there, but it’s not always easy to find and sometimes it needs to be compiled by looking at other sources of information.  If you are intrigued by the idea of forming a government information interest group, please contact me off list.  Interest groups require at least 6 members. 


It will soon be June and we’ll be meeting in beautiful Wolfville, Nova Scotia for the Annual APLA conference.


At that conference, I hope to be presenting on the state of government information in Atlantic Canada and would like your thoughts on:

  1. What your opinion is of the state of government information in Atlantic Canada
  2. What problems you currently have with government information.
  3. How can we improve the way we curate government information
  4. What do you think the future of government information is in Atlantic Canada
  5. Are you interested in collaborating with other libraries to help improve the situation, if necessary.

If my topic is approved, I will focus on the provincial situation.


Please reply to me directly off list.


Thanks for your help.

See you in June.
