The Canadian Library Association (CLA)

CLA logo The Dalhousie Student Chapter of the Canadian Library Association is comprised of members who are currently pursuing their Masters of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) degree at Dalhousie University’s School of Information Management (SIM).

The Canadian Library Association is the national association that represents those who work in or advocate for Canada’s estimated 21,000 libraries. CLA members work in college, university, public, special (corporate, non-profit, and government), and school libraries. Members also sit on boards of public libraries, work for companies that provide goods and services to libraries, or are students in graduate level or community college programs.

You do not have to be a member of the Canadian Library Association (CLA) to attend general meetings, or to participate in events or programs. However, if you wish to become a member of the Dalhousie CLA Student Chapter, you must become a member of the CLA.

The 2014-2015 Executive Members are:

Megan O’Brien & Jennie Thompson (Co-chairs)
Heather Reid (Secretary)
Heather Campbell (Treasurer)

In Fall 2014, CLA will be looking to fill two (2) First Year Representative positions.
