Canadian Council of Archives need your help

Letter Writing, Facebook, Twitter Part of Call to Action

Submitted by CNSA on
The Canadian Council of Archives Call to the community for support in voicing opposition to the elimination of NADP is taking traditional and new forms. Leaders of the archival community are asking archives to write a letter to their federal MPs outlining what they have accomplished for their institution/town/researchers using NADP funding.
The CCA has written its own letter to Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, urging the Conservative Government to reconsider the decision made by Library and Archives Canada.
The CCA has started a Facebook page to coordinate communities efforts and share stores. If you are on FB, please like/join/contribute to the level you feel comforatable.
You can also keep up-to-date on Twitter. Follow CCA_Archives, hashtags: #NADP ; #archives.
An in-person rally is also being planned via Google Groups for those archivists, librarians and friends near Ottawa. Join the "Archivists on to Ottawa Trek" for more information.
