CAPAL18:  Community, Diversity, and Education: Academic Librarianship in Challenging Times 

The fifth annual conference of the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians  provides a unique opportunity for academic librarians to critically examine and discuss the ways in which collaboration, respect for differences, and professionalism empower us at a time when the values of our profession are in danger of being eroded, both within our universities and within the wider world.  

CAPAL18 will take place at the University of Regina from 29 to 31 May 2018. A half-day CAPAL18 Pre-conference workshop with a focus on indigenization is scheduled for 28 May 2018.
