Canadian Journal of Academic Librarianship


Dear Members:

The Canadian Journal of Academic Librarianship has just published its inaugural issue. We invite you to review the Table of Contents below and then visit to read the full articles.

The Canadian Journal of Academic Librarianship focuses on advancing the profession of academic librarianship rather than the institutions of academic libraries. It is open to all research methodologies. It is Canadian and bilingual in French and English. Submissions are peer-reviewed and the journal is open access. Launching this journal has been a wonderful collaborative effort by authors, peer reviewers, and editors, and it speaks highly of what we are able to accomplish in CAPAL as a member-driven organization.

Join us by exploring, critiquing, and advancing academic librarianship in Canada and beyond, by reading and contributing to the Canadian Journal of Academic Librarianship.

Best wishes,
Monica Fazekas
