A warm greeting on a freezing cold January day!
Just want to let you all know that the MOOC: Library Advocacy Unshushed, will be offered again, starting Feb. 2. You will recognize some familiar NELI folks in our guest speaker roster. This is a free, interesting, and painless way to do professional development during a Canadian winter. I hope you will help to spread the word in your networks.

MOOC: Library Advocacy Unshushed!
From Ronn Cheney:
Good day all:
I have a lawyer retiring at end of year and has a complete set (46 volumes) of Halsbury’s Laws of England - 3d ed + the Canadian Converter supplements.
For the cost of shipping they will be available until end of December.
Our local recycling depot will not take books (Go figure) so he would like them to go to an inside location that is warm and fuzzy.
After all it is Christmas.

From Carla Graebner, Simon Fraser University:
Statistics Canada is in the process of redeveloping their website and is looking for feedback [http://www.statcan.gc.ca/beta/n1/en].
From their FAQ [http://www.statcan.gc.ca/beta/n1/en/statcan_faq#a1_1]:
"We are improving our website in response to comments received from our users. While most users are able to navigate the current website and find the information they require, we have identified the need for a more simplified and coherent product line.
Statistics Canada is also changing the way it disseminates information to Canadians to take advantage of evolving technology, increase user satisfaction and improve data retrieval success rates."
The FAQ notes that the beta site is not to be used as the source for official statistics since the information on it is a snapshot of content from spring 2014. Feedback can be given on a page by page basis, sent directly to the Statistics Canada web design team or submitted to the discussion forum for participating online [http://www.statcan.gc.ca/beta/n1/en/consultation
