Shaunna posted the message below on SLAW (modified below). I would have loved to attend this session but ELLA also has a session that same day on the changes at the Alberta Law Libraries. "Not a problem!" Shaunna tells me. Apparently, Kirsten Wurmann at the Legal Resource Centre plans to post the session below as a podcast on the LRC website. Awesome! Thank you Kirsten and thanks Shaunna for letting us know about this.
