CLA: Royal Society review highlights opportunities for CLA

The Canadian Library Association (CLA) put out a press release on November 14, 2014, highlighting the opportunities for CLA as outlined in the Royal Society of Canada’s report, “The Future Now: Canada’s Libraries, Archives and Public Memory“.
