Session C 11:15 – 12:00
Nancy Lusignan has a Master’s Degree in Information Sciences (EBSI). She worked for 6 years as a school librarian for the Commission scolaire des Hautes-Rivières where she was very involved in various projects promoting the educational use of school libraries and children’s literature. For 4 years, she led a librarians’ committee on ebooks in Montérégie. Since February 2019, she has been the project manager at Bibliopresto for the Biblius project. Collaboration is the cornerstone of her professional approach.
Bibliopresto is a nonprofit organisation created in 2012 by a public libraries consortium (BAnQ, ABPQ, Réseaux BIBLIO). Its objective: to develop digital products and services to support the mission of the library. Among others, Bibliopresto deployed Pretnumerique.ca, the ebook platform now offered in most public libraries in Québec and New Brunswick. Because of its rich expertise, it is now a key player of digital innovation for libraries.
