Col­lec­tion an as­set to is­land

Cape Breton Post - - COMMENT - Alex Mor­ri­son Corn­wal­lis Park, N.S.

Last Thurs­day evening, my wife and I were guests at the Syd­ney and Area Cham­ber of Com­merce din­ner held at Vic­to­ria Park. Be­fore the din­ner, there was a re­cep­tion hosted by Cape Bre­ton Uni­ver­sity to mark the do­na­tion of a multi-thou­sand vol­ume peace­keep­ing and con­flict res­o­lu­tion li­brary to CBU by the Pear­son Peace­keep­ing Cen­tre.

As a Cape Bre­toner, found­ing pres­i­dent of the peace­keep­ing cen­tre and an alum­nus of Xavier Ju­nior Col­lege, I was very proud and pleased that this col­lec­tion, re­puted to be among the best in the world, has found a new home in Cape Bre­ton. It will be of great use to cur­rent and fu­ture stu­dents and fac­ulty and will serve as a draw­ing card world-wide to all who wish to learn more about peace­keep­ing in all its as­pects.

CBU tak­ing the time to make much about the col­lec­tion avail­able elec­tron­i­cally will en­hance its use­ful­ness greatly.
