I would like to update you on three AGIIG conference activities at CLA 2010, June 2-5 in Edmonton, AB. http://www.cla.ca/conference/2010/
A difference from previous years is that we will attempt a meeting prior to the CLA Interest Group Breakfast meeting. We never have enough time at the breakfast meeting, to get through issues., such as the DSP committee minutes see http://dsp-psd.pwgsc.gc.ca/news-nouvelles/2009-11-16-e.html. As well, we should discuss CLA’s announcement about changes to the association, at:
- Thursday June 3, 7:00 am to 8:00 am – AGIIG Interest Group Meeting – roundtable discussion moderated by the Co-conveners to identify issues and actions to carry forward to the Interest Group Breakfast meeting. Issues for possible discussion: liaison with other CLA committees and interest groups, the Olga B Bishop Award (an AGIIG award not awarded for a number of years), 2010-2011 AGIIG activities, Infodep-l emails that alert us to the disappearance of federal publications.
- Friday June 4, 7:30- 8:30 , CLA Interest Group Breakfast Meeting. Members of the CLA Executive visit the interest groups at this meeting.
- Saturday June 5, 8:30 am to 9:30 am, Session H55 “What Users Want: Assessing Government Information Preferences to Drive Information Services.” Presenters: Jennie M. Burroughs, University of Montana, Caron Rollins, University of Victoria.
And… another session of interest… Session I58, Saturday, June 5 9:45-10:45: Greater Government Accountability. Finds of the Taskforce on the Future of the Federal Library Service. Speaker from LAC.
