Become Newest Members of ARL
At the ARL Membership Meetings in October 2009 and April 2010, the
Association membership voted to invite the University of Calgary Libraries
and Cultural Resources and the University of Ottawa Library to join ARL as the
124th and 125th members, respectively. Both universities are members of the
Canadian research-intensive “G-13” institutions based on sponsored research
and number of PhDs.
The University of Calgary Libraries and Cultural Resources (LCR) brings
together the University Library, Archives and Special Collections, the Nickle
Arts Museum, and the University of Calgary Press. LCR Vice Provost and
University Librarian H. Thomas Hickerson accepted the invitation to join ARL.
The University of Ottawa is a bilingual institution and the library brings
together people, expertise, and knowledge resources in physical and virtual
environments that foster research, teaching, and learning in English and French.
University Librarian Leslie Weir accepted ARL’s invitation.
