Welcome to the New Year! Our Raise a Librarian campaign run in partnership with the Library and Information Studies Students Association (LISSA) here at the University of Alberta wrapped up at the beginning of December and we now have the grand tally:
That’s right- $1,880 contributed by the wider community of library supporters. LISSA and FIP will evenly split the amount which means that $940 of this amount will contribute to the costs of hosting FIP 2017.
We could not have carried out this campaign without the support of all our contributors, and everyone who shared our campaign either in person or through social media. Thank you for helping make FIP 2017 possible, and for helping those of us who are librarians in training gain the professional skills we need to make a difference. Thank you!
