CAPAL Student Chapter coming to Dalhousie


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.

Dal ReadsThe 2014 Dal Reads shortlist has been announced! The three contenders are:

1. Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore – Robin Sloan

2. The Antagonist – Lynn Coady

3. Reality Boy – A.S. King

(Personally, my vote would go to the book about a secret society, mysterious books, and the power of Google… but that’s just me.)
