CRKN is pleased to announce its membership in the Fédération des milieux documentaires (FMD). Through this membership, CRKN will expand its collaboration with FMD members to advance contributions to the Francophone library and information science field and create new opportunities for knowledge exchange.
CRKN joins other FMD members, such as l’Association des Bibliothécaires du Québec (ABQLA), le Réseau BIBLIO du Québec, the Special Libraries Association-Eastern Canada Chapter (SLA-ECC), la Corporation des bibliothécaires professionnels du Québec (CBPQ), l’Association professionnelle des techniciennes et techniciens du Québec (APTDQ), and l’Association des étudiantes et des étudiants de l’École de bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l’information de l’Université de Montréal (AEEEBSI) in this initiative.
“CRKN is looking forward to strengthening our relationships with FMD members and Francophone libraries throughout Canada,” said Clare Appavoo, CRKN Executive Director. “This is a valuable opportunity to work on shared goals and advance scholarly communications.”
Formerly l’Association pour l’avancement des sciences et des techniques de la documentation (ASTED), the FMD was created in November 2018 at the Congrès des professionnels et professionnelles de l’information to foster learning and cooperation between Quebec library associations. “Welcoming CRKN as a member means gaining a new national perspective on information management and the challenges and opportunities that our members are facing,” added Réjean Savard, President of the FMD, “we are pleased to be strengthening and diversifying ties between Francophone members across Canada, including the Fédération’s regional members in Québec.”
In addition to joining other FMD members in discussion and strategizing, membership means that CRKN is supporting the Congrès des professionnels et professionnelles de l’information. CRKN members also now have access to the journal Documentation et bibliothèque via the CRKN website.
