Dates of existence


The Alberta Library Network was a networking initiative among university libraries in the early 1980s. Alan MacDonald represented The University of Calgary and was responsible for preparing the document, "Principles and Considerations for Implementing an Alberta Library Network," which was presented to the Alberta Network Assembly in June 1982. Although this initiative was not implemented, the drive to network still exists and continues to reappear under different names.
