AAO 25th Anniversary!

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Archives Association of Ontario is publishing an organizational history book entitled In Pursuit of the Archival Endeavour: The Story of the Archives Association of Ontario. The narrative stretches back to the earliest regional chapters that were formed in Ontario, providing context for how the profession has changed over the past forty years. It is written by John Smart, Brian P.N. Beaven, Anne Hepplewhite, Ellen Millar, and Marissa Paron, and edited by Paul J. Henry, Brian P.N. Beaven, and Karen Teeple. When you register for the AAO Conference, you can take advantage of this opportunity to pre-order a copy of the book. The book will be published in May and you will pick up your copy at the 2018 Conference. A softcover copy is $25.00 and a hardcover copy is $45.00. The book can be mailed to you directly for a small shipping fee.
