Feliciter;2006, Vol. 52 Issue 4, p132
The author reflects on the activities undertaken by the Canadian Library Association (CLA) in 2005. He inferred that 2005 was a tough year for CLA because new projects were initiated despite insufficient resources. The author believed that there are plenty of opportunities for CLA to help the Canadian society and economy. CLA developed the first electronic database of eligible libraries and collaborated with Canada Post Corp. on its Library Books Shipping Tool for smaller libraries.
