Welcome to the 2012 Spring issue of The Courier! As always, we’d like to thank everyone who contributed articles for this issue.
We received a tonne of great submissions for this issues, including one from SLA Toronto’s President Laura Warner sharing the insight and wisdom of her many conference experiences in hopes of helping members attending conferences get the most out of their investment.
This issue features a brand new recurring column, Partner’s Corner. This column will highlight updates or recent news from SLA Toronto’s partners, helping our membership get to know our partners better. We are also featuring Heather Buchansky and Stacey Nordlund’s winning statements for the Informart Student-to-Conference award. Congratulations to Heather and Stacey and we look forward to reading about their conference experiences in the Fall issue.
