Yes, we have changed our name! The decision to change our council title to reflect the transition of library to learning commons was made at our 2016 AGM. Our website will be updated to reflect this change in the coming months.

The April 2015 issue of Teacher Librarian kicked off The Year of the Learning Commons: April 2015 - May 2016. A special website provides events and ideas for you to join the celebration.
In another significant learning commons development, Alberta Education recently issued a Learning Commons Policy and Guidelines statement. The policy statement and guidelines appear in the Guide to Education. This makes Alberta the first province in Canada to put in place a policy recognizing the integral role of the learning commons in teaching and learning.
