CASLIS Ottawa writes "CASLIS Ottawa is pleased to invite you to a two-day seminar to explore the value of special libraries — how we measure it and how we communicate it. The seminar will be held January 23 and 24, 2008 at 395 Wellington Street.
Special libraries — whether corporate, government or not-for-profit — face the constant struggle of justifying their existence and budgets and of explaining their value to their stakeholders. For more information, visit http://www.caslisottawa.on.ca"
Over the course of two-days, participants will have an opportunity to learn about:
The seminar includes a keynote presentation by Margaret Haines, University Librarian at Carleton University, on evidence-based librarianship and special libraries, highlighting the importance of information practitioner research and how we can improve the use of research in our professional practice.
At the end of the first day, participants are invited to join their colleagues and friends for an evening reception at Ottawa's French-styled eatery, the Metropolitain Brasserie. The brasserie's Parisian-inspired decor is the perfect backdrop, with its red velvet draperies, for this reception of delectable hot and cold hors-d'oeuvres.
