The following is an announcement from Library and Archives Canada
Starting October 7, 2011, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) will begin a systems upgrade on its server that will ultimately enable clients to use the Government of Canada's "Receiver General Buy Button" (RGBB) when making purchases using LAC's online forms.Comment: This move is another case of LAC bringing its operations in line with general Government of Canada practice. In the long term it should provide a standard and more convenient user experience for LAC clients. Transition frustrations can be anticipated.
The RGBB is a common service used by federal departments and agencies for the electronic acceptance of payments and secure storage of related payment information. This function also provides convenient, reliable and secure payment services to clients and businesses during their online dealings with the federal government.
The transition to RGBB will help align LAC's business processes with those of other federal departments and agencies.
During the transition, clients will have the option of either being invoiced for copies or leaving their coordinates on the order form provided online. Clients who opt to leave their coordinates will be contacted at a later date to process their credit card purchase.
