Circulaire 1

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Here is the first edition of the EPCAF Circulaire. The Circulaire or Circ will allow us to streamline our communication instead of flooding the listserv with emails. We will use the Circ to collaborate on the resource list, communicate additions made to the website, and share information on relevant events that because of their temporary nature will not be listed on the site permanently. If there are notices you would like to include, please send us an email with the headline EPCAF Circulaire.

Below you will find updates about the bibliography project, and also noteworthy events & websites.
