Database of biographies and biographical materials

ELAN, the association's biannual newsletter, contains articles and news items of historical interest in almost every issue. Of special interest is the series “Libraries Named after Librarians” authored by Suzette Giles.

a special issue of ELAN Summer 2004, records 100 years of library education in Canadian universities, colleges, and other post-secondary institutions.
