On behalf of the conference organizing committee, I’m pleased to present the preliminary program for CAPAL15: Academic Librarianship and Critical Practice, the second annual conference of the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL).

The program features sessions on a wide range of topics, from open access to critical pedagogy and information literacy to digitization to philosophy to academic freedom to corporatization and neoliberalism, and much more. We are also excited to welcome our keynote speakers, renowned cultural critic and public intellectual Henry Giroux (McMaster University) and critical LIS scholar Sarah T. Roberts (Western University). We hope you enjoy this exceptional program.
