CAPAL Student Chapter coming to Dalhousie

CAPAL

This summer, SIM students Hilary Lynd, Mark McCumber, and Jaq-Lin Larder are starting up a Dalhousie Student Chapter of the Canadian Association for Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL).

CAPAL is more than an association: it’s an advocacy group that focuses on the areas of education, standards, professional practice, ethics, and core principles. The Dalhousie Student Chapter is sure to collaborate with other SIM associations in order to promote the interests of future academic librarians in the program.

If you are interested in academic libraries, this is a great opportunity to get involved. Contact us for more information.
