Meetings this week
Two meetings this week:
Monday - CFUW Oakville - The speaker was Lisa Rochon, architecture columnist/critic for The Globe and Mail. Her national column 'Cityspace' explores the complex fabric of the Canadian city - its public spaces, its trophy buildings and its contextual architecture. She travels regularly for her column in Canada and abroad and has written extensively about the redevelopment of the World Trade Center in New York. She has recently released a book "Up North". She spoke on the Canadian-ness of our architecture.
Wednesday - SLA Toronto Chapter West Programming - The speaker was Helen Katz, Manager, Research and Information Services, Ontario Ministry of Finance. Helen spoke on "Business Research for the Non-Business Librarian". Being a chemistry librarian I learned about a number of sources I had not considered before. The turnout for the meeting was good -- quite a few people we had not met before.
