Digitization: Library and Archives Canada Contributing More Video to CPAC’s New Digital Archive of Parliamentary Proceedings

From LAC:

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has already digitized 4,000 hours of Parliamentary proceedings recordings to contribute to The CPAC Digital Archive: Rewinding the Public Record, an initiative by the Cable Public Affairs Channel (CPAC).

As part of its 20th anniversary celebrations, CPAC makes available, through its website, thousands of archival hours of prime political programming, including Parliamentary proceedings from the House of Commons provided by LAC.

LAC’s contribution will continue over the next few years, reaching a total of about 18,000 hours, which will cover from 1977 into 2001. Each hour of recording takes approximately three hours to be digitized.
