ELA Annual AGM/Get-together Convention

  • The Annual Conference is held every fall, usually in a Toronto Public Library convenient for access by car or by public transportation.  Morning and afternoon programs feature outstanding speakers on important topics.  The  annual business meeting which provokes lively  discussion, is followed by lunch, another opportunity to meet old and new friends.  All for a nominal fee. This year's program details will be posted as they become available.
  • Two items of interest related to past programs are the following:

ELA Board and Committees

Board and committee members are responsible for planning and managing activities to achieve the goals of the association. Because they share those association goals, other members  may, with advance notice, attend  or contribute to board meetings; for dates press here.

ELA Cooperation with Other Organizations

  • ELA cooperates with other organizations on  matters of mutual interest:
  • ELA worked jointly with the Canadian Library Association  to establish the W. Kaye Lamb Award for service to seniors.
  • ELA presented a session at the 2006 OLA convention on librarians as volunteers at home and abroad.
  • ELA organized a program for FIS students ( Toronto) on techniques used in  library history research.

ELAN and ELA Publishing Activities

  • ELA publishing activities are focused on ELAN, the association's biannual newsletter which is both serious in its presentation of historical and current information issues but also at times humorous in its depiction of some aspects of library and information services. ELAN's special issue, summer 2005, is dedicated to library education.
  • ELA publishes on this web site Occasional Papers by members.

ELA Historical Activities.

ELA Internet Activities

  • The ELA Electronic Mailing List is maintained by  ELA for the benefit of all members. ELA gratefully acknowledges the contribution of  the Listserv's host, the Ontario Library Association;
  • The ELA Web site is the work of ELA members with the technical support of the Webmaster Cameron Riddle and the generous cooperation of our web host the Faculty of Information Studies, the University of Toronto.
  • ELA is also has aFacebook page especially  for the needs of particular members who like to communicate what they are doing and thinking.

Volunteer Opportunities

LA lists opportunities for members to use  their technical and professional knowledge gained through education and work experience to assist libraries, archives, and other institutions with their information and administrative services.  ELA's role is limited to providing the notice that an institution is seeking volunteers.
