Pond Inlet Archivist featured in Up Here Magazine

The members of Nunavut Library Association come from many varied backgrounds, and Philippa Ootoowak, currently the Archivist for the Pond Inlet Archives, is a case in point. She first arrived in Pond Inlet as a nurse in the 1970s, and served for many years as the community librarian for the Rebecca P. Idlout Library, before setting up and managing the Archives. Her story as the “accidental archivist” has been highlighted in the June issue of Up Here, and can also be viewed online:
