Save Library and Archives Canada campaign

Following an 11am press conference in the Parliament building in Ottawa the Canadian Association of University Teachers today unveiled their campaign to save Library and Archives Canada, and Canada's documentary heritage. Check out the web site at www.savelibraryarchives.ca

The concerns that underlie CAUT's campaign are modernization, mandate, acquisitions, services and decentralization. Each of these is experienced by those of us who use LAC facilities, directly as a visitor, through online services, or indirectly as a client of the educators, authors and others who rely on access to Canada's heritage in producing their materials.

I recommend visiting and signing up for updates, which will show that you consider these issues of concern, at www.savelibraryarchives.ca
