“If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.”
– African Proverb
Globally, archives, libraries and museums are recognizing the similarities in the work we do. We all collect, manage and share resources. While professionally we approach these functions from different perspectives. there are many opportunities for us to learn from each other, and to optimize the experiences that we can offer the people of Nova Scotia. In joining together, we can explore practical ways to provide better experiences for the public, increase productivity, and work more efficiently.
For the first time, the Association of Nova Scotia Museums (ANSM), the Council of Nova Scotia Archives (CNSA), the Library Boards Association of Nova Scotia (LBANS) and the Nova Scotia Library Association (NSLA) have joined forces to offer an engaging, collaborative conference exploring these ideas in a Nova Scotia context. We will explore:
- the convergence of our roles and goals
- ways to enhance lifelong leaning across disciplines
- practical ways to safeguard our cultural and written heritage
- topics of shared interest, like advocacy, governance, infrasstructure and legistration
Please join us for this unique opportunity to meet with colleagues across disciplines, make new connections and together envison new ways to enrich our public places and community spaces.
