Spring CULC/CBUC Meeting – Hamilton

The Executive has made some changes to the upcoming meeting schedule and I promised to get it out to allow as much time to plan as possible. The CARL Board met last week and supported and approved the concept. Given the Summit in December it is a good chance for collaboration.

DATE: May 17/18, 2017 (start on 17th @ 10:00 am; Finish on 18th after lunch with optional area tours being planned)
WHERE: Hamilton Public Library, Central Library
CONNECTION: Some elements will be done jointly with colleagues from Canadian Association of Research Libraries

Please mark your calendars. The Executive has been working on some changes to the format whereby we will use some of the time together to work on issues/projects in smaller groups. With the Spring one some of that work will be done with CARL colleagues on the 18th.

A block of rooms have been reserved at the Sheraton Hamilton Hotel (116 King Street West) in downtown Hamilton. In fact attached to the Jackson Square Complex that also houses Hamilton’s Central Library where we will be meeting. There are a couple of room configuration options at either $129 or $149 per night. Parking is an additional $12.50 per car per night.

Reservations can also be made by contacting our 24 hour, toll-free reservations line at 1-888-627-8161 and asking for the ‘CULC/CBUC Spring Meeting’ group block.

Future Meetings (as currently planned)

  • Autumn 2017 – Vaughan (October 2/3)
  • Spring 2018 – Regina
