Greetings from the West!


As Jen kindly introduced, my name is Brenda and I’m taking over as Reference Librarian here at the CCLA! It’s obvious to me that Katie did an amazing job here and it’s my biggest hope that I can continue on in that tradition.

By way of a brief introduction – I obtained my Masters in Information Studies at the University of Toronto, before doing some work at the Ontario Securities Commission law library. Most recently I have come from working as the Librarian at the Hamilton Law Association, the CCLA’s equivalent in Hamilton. On a more personal note, I’m probably one of the biggest nerds out there – video games, sci-fi/fantasy, board games – you name it! So stop by and say hello sometime, I promise I won’t bite (unless it’s the zombie apocalypse of course, then all bets are off).

Needless to say I’m extremely excited to be here and am really looking forward to working with and getting to know the legal community in Ottawa. And of course if you have any research questions my email (blauritzen@ccla-abcc.ca) and phone line (613-233-7386 ex.222) are always open!
