Ottawa – Fall Meeting

The Fall meeting of ARLIS Ontario will take place in Ottawa on Friday November 12  and Saturday November 13 at Carleton University.
This will be a joint meeting of the ARLIS Ontario chapter and the ARLIS Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec (MOQ) Chapter.

Meeting cost: $25 to ARLIS Ontario Members, $10 for students.

Meeting room at Carleton: MacOdrum Library, Room 102. (Directions: The room is in the basement of the library. If you enter through the front doors walk through the lobby to the double doors and proceed down the stairs. The room is slightly to the right at the bottom of the stairs.)

Parking at Carleton: There is not close free parking to campus. The lot that is closest to the library is lot 1 but it has a 4 hour limit and is rather expensive. The far lot is the best rate and no time limit for the day and is P6 (on the campus map) just as you come off Bronson turn right.
