The free exchange of ideas at LAC


“The free exchange of ideas and information and the opportunity for people to connect with each other lie at the heart of a civil society.”

That's a quote from Paul LeClerc of the New York Public Library in a document  "Setting the Course for Information Resources" posted on the "Towards a Pan-Canadian Documentary Heritage Network" section of the LAC website.

When LAC does so little to facilitate that connection with the bulk of its clients, is it any wonder they are so alienated from the organization they are not up in arms about the budget cuts recently announced?
