A new public roundtable consultation session has been added for Tuesday, November 8 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., at the Comfort Inn on Airport Road. Please consider taking part if you are able.
Feedback from the public consultations, stakeholder consultations, surveys, written responses, letters, and independent research will be synthesized into a report for the guidance of the Provincial Information and Library Resources Board (PILRB) and our provincial government in deciding the future of the NLPL system.
As information professionals, we are uniquely situated to stand as a bastion against systemic dissolution of not only our profession but the educational system that promotes our citizens’ ability to engage with research. To help ensure we can facilitate our citizens’ access to and understanding of the health-related information they need, and help them towards positive health outcomes, we must speak out. For more information, see the NLPL page, the Review of the Provincial Public Library System and the blog for Newfoundland and Labrador Library Association (NLLA).
