Welcome to the fall 2012 issue of The Courier! As always, we’d like to thank everyone who contributed articles to this issue.
As Laura noted in her President’s Letter, the SLA Toronto Chapter had a number of events—engaging article clubs, post-SLA conference dinners, and the summer social—to wrap up another eventful summer season.
A key event from this summer—beyond the Chapter, but affecting all information professionals—was the change in Canada’s Copyright Act. Lesley Ellen Harris offers an informative recap on these issues and changes.
And while the SLA Annual Conference may seem like a distant memory, articles from the Infomart Student-to-Conference award winners Heather Buchansky and Stacey Nordlund recap their experiences and share some insights and information on their time spent in Chicago.
The SLA Toronto Chapter calendar has a lot of events and workshops to note during the next couple months—article clubs, resume workshops, and, of course, the holiday social! If you are planning to attend any of these events, please consider sharing your experiences in The Courier. Submissions to the newsletter are welcome at any time, as are comments and queries.
