Librarians' and Archivists' Conference

October 25, 2019 at 9:00am - October 26, 2019 at 5:00pm
Delta Ottawa City Centre
101 Lyon St
Ottawa, ON K1R 5T9


– Academic libraries and archives across Canada are facing reorganization and restructuring. These initiatives can threaten the positions and work of librarians and archivists, and undermine traditions of collegial governance. The 2019 CAUT Librarians’ & Archivists’ Conference will investigate and discuss this reality. Participants and panelists will examine how librarians and archivists, individually and together with their academic staff associations and CAUT, can resist the devaluation, deskilling and reassignment of traditional work, and ensure a strong place in new organizational models for the core values of community service, openness, collegial governance, and social justice. Please join your peers from across Canada at this bilingual event.
