Since the program's 25th anniversary, 5 years ago, the Library Tech department has wanted to celebrate this achievement. Really celebrate. With the introduction of a properly funded Alumni Relations office, we were finally able to dream big. Members of the LIBIT department know, on a personal level, how life-changing our program really is because we are ALL alumni of the program! We were delighted to have the opportunity to share the accomplishments of our alumni and our program in a heartfelt way.
We wanted to offer attendees a chance to socialize but we also wanted to provide some professional development opportunities. The increasing expectations for most library technicians gave us inspiration to present workshops and team building activities that centred on leadership. The remarkable changes to UFV infrastructure was inspiration for offering campus tours, too!
