Continuing our tradition, we bring you a special issue. One that incorporates the bizarre and the silly and puts a spotlight on creativity. These articles are special because you won't find them in the mainstream news. Don't worry, they're not alternative facts, more like alternative realities.
We have a wide-range of things for you to read as we all return to work after the long Canada Day weekend.
It seems appropriate to start with the first in our reflections on Canada at 150. Dr Toni Samek, chair of the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta, discusses diversity and library schools.
The latest Library IT Crowd column interviews Jonathan Younker about his role at Brock University.
Also included is the latest jam-packed issue of Inside OCULA with topics including maps, stories, games, research and collaboration.
We hope you enjoy it all and please do let us know what you think.
