Opening Ceremony for Where Are the Children? Exhibit

You are cordially invited to join us on January 17 at 4:00 pm in Carleton University’s MacOdrum Library for the opening ceremony of the installed exhibition, Where Are the Children?  This is an exhibition on loan from the Legacy of Hope Foundation, curated by photo-based artist and curator Jeff Thomas, that provides an overview of the histories of residential schools in Canada.  It features more than 100 unforgettable historical images and puts those images into their historical context.  More on the exhibition can be found at the exhibit's website.

The MacOdrum Library is co-hosting the exhibition with the Carleton Centre for Public History, and with the financial support of the Department of History, the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. The Carleton Centre for Indigenous Initiatives is also supporting this exhibition by featuring tours for Carleton students and faculty that includes break-out sessions with Elders and Knowledge Keepers.

Refreshments will be provided.

To assist with our planning, please RSVP by January 15 by sending a message indicating how many guests will be attending. But please still attend even if you are unable to RSVP!

Further inquiries about the exhibition and its associated activities can be addressed to Michel Hogue (michel.hogue@carleton.ca) and John C. Walsh (john.walsh@carleton.ca), or via the Carleton Centre for Public History.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Changes to eJournals Information in Catalogue

Starting in January 2019, we will no longer be updating the holding information for eJournals in the catalogue. This change is a result of the work being done to prepare for our migration to Collaborative Futures in December 2019.

You can find up-to-date holdings information for any eJournal title using the eJournals link on the Library home page under the Summon box or via the menu: Find > Journals > Search or browse online journals.

Existing information for eJournals will remain in place in the catalogue. Because most current eJournal holdings are listed with a start date and no end date, the information in the catalogue will be accurate unless our subscription to the journal ends.

This change only impacts eJournals: holdings for print journals will continue to be updated in the catalogue.
