New from Library and Archives Canada: “Meeting Challenges of the Future: From Reflection to Action”

From Library and Archives Canada:

The Deputy Head and Librarian and Archivist of Canada has released an orientation document to complement Shaping our Continuing Memory Collectively: A Representative Documentary Heritage, which was published in 2009.

The new document, entitled Meeting Challenges of the Future: From Reflection to Action, will help steer the institution in the coming months. This orientation document is the next logical step that flows from the work accomplished so far.

The document lists essential components that will facilitate the achievement of corporate objectives and deliver on LAC’s mandate. Among other things, the document stresses the importance of adapting to the digital environment to take advantage of new technologies that will help build, preserve, and describe our collections as well as make them accessible for the benefit of all Canadians.
