NAHLA-L is retiring

But have no fears, it’s being replaced. Due to technological constraints and aging infrastructure, we have decided to move the NAHLA-L listserv over to a google group. All current NAHLA-L members will be transferred to a google group, Northern Alberta Health Libraries Association. Expect an invitation in early May.
