Message from the President


The Association des Bibliothécaires du Québec/Québec Library Association helps McGill students get more connected to the Montréal and Québec library scene, whether for the short term while in school or with a long-term career in mind. ABQLA hosts various networking, educational, and online events, as well as an annual conference, with the aim of helping librarians develop themselves professionally and get to know other librarians. 

Our goal as a Student Chapter is to plan similarly helpful events for students, tapping into the knowledge of professionals in Montreal. We do this by offering social, networking, and educational events, as well as promoting events other chapters of ABQLA are offering through the year, which student members can usually attend for free. 

This year ABQLA is starting a peer partnership mentor program, offering students the opportunity to have a working professional mentor. We will try our best to match you to a professional whose career matches your interests (e.g. academic, children's, or public) so you can get the most out of it. 

ABQLA also offers at least one scholarship in the winter term. 

Membership is not necessary to join us at events, but it is free for students and offers a lot of extra perks. Read more about ABQLA at http://www.abqla.qc.ca

We look forward to seeing you at our events this fall!

Kind regards,

Cate Henderson, MISt Candidate 2017
