British Columbia Library Association

Upcoming Issue

For the next issue of BCLA Perspectives, we hope to encourage discussion about relationship-building, community, Indigenous knowledge lenses, and reciprocity. We’d love to hear how you’ve built community in your libraries, how you build and maintain relationships within and outside of your libraries, what kind of work you’re doing in terms of reciprocity, and how you’re engaging with other ways of knowing. This is a broad topic, so please let us know anything you’re willing to share on this theme.

As always, we encourage content from our colleagues from all parts of the province, and all types and sizes of libraries. We would also like to especially encourage voices we don’t hear from or read often, although we understand that life continues to be stressful at this time.

In an effort to increase content from and for libraries and librarians outside of larger urban centres, we recently added a new interview series that will highlight librarians and other information professionals working in rural or remote settings throughout the province. If you’d be interested in having a casual interview about your work for this new ongoing interview series, please contact us at perspectives@bcla.bc.caThis was our first profile. Please be advised, there may be a waitlist for being profiled as there is a large amount of interest.

Pitches are due April 25, submissions are due May 2. We aim to publish on May 16.
