New Librarians Symposium 2020 (Cancelled)
June 19, 2020
Theme: Libraries and Labour: The Current Landscape and the Road Ahead
The theme for this year’s event is Libraries and Labour: The Current Landscape and the Road Ahead. In selecting this theme, we would like to consider what labour challenges the profession currently faces. What questions do you have about labour, working conditions, and power structures? What does the library labour landscape have in common with the rest of the public sector and how are current provincial, statewide, or federal governments impacting that landscape? What are the most pressing labour issues our profession or its organizations need to address in order to survive in the current society and economy? What does labour mean to you and how do you engage in asserting or fighting for your rights?
