Joint Statement on Qualities of a Successful Librarian and Archivist of Canada
The Canadian library and archival communities share a common interest in the impending appointment of a new leader for Library and Archives Canada. Over the past week, the Canadian Association of Law Libraries has collaborated with other national and provincial associations to consider the qualities we believe are necessary for a successful candidate to the position of Librarian and Archivist of Canada.
A broad spectrum of associations has collaborated to produce and endorse a Joint Statement on Qualities of a Successful Librarian and Archivist of Canada. This statement was distributed to the Clerk of the Privy Council, the Minister of Canadian Heritage, and other key MPs and stakeholders.
CALL members are encouraged to draft their own cover letters and forward them with copies of the joint statement to their MPs and to the Minister of Canadian Heritage.
