Friends of LAC annual book sale

Once again it turns out that the BIFHSGO annual conference and the Friends of Library and Archives Canada annual book sale are occurring on exactly the same days, 16 to 18 September 2011. Pity. There's so much that goes on in Ottawa it's inevitable there will be conflicts, but this one isn't so bad.

People who regularly haunt the book sale know that the real bargains go fast. You have to be there at the opening to take advantage of the pick of the crop. Doing so would mean missing one of two preconference sessions offered by BIFHSGO, "I Can't Find Them Anywhere!: effective searching, sharing and collaborating with Ancestry" by Leslie Anderson, or "Storing and Preserving Family  Achives and Artefacts: arresting the deterioration of your family treasures" by Kyla Ubbink.

So you can still take advantage of the book sale and be at LAC in time for one of the afternoon preconference sessions and the whole of the rest of the conference.

The Friends of the LAC book sale is held in the Centre Court at the St. Laurent Shopping opening on Friday, September 16 at 09:30am.
