Our Initiative

On Friday March 28, 2014, twenty six library associations came together to strategize a new collaborative advocacy initiative.  As a result of the discussions, there was unanimous agreement that a collaborative approach to advocacy is required. The group agreed that the overarching goal of a collaborative advocacy initiative will be to raise the national public profile of the services and expertise offered by libraries, librarians, library technicians, archivists and information professionals.

Since then, the following Associations have formally agreed to participate in our network:

AAO       Archives Association of Ontario

APLIC   Association of Parliamentary Libraries in Canada (Observer)
