Library and Archives Canada Revitalization

After years of austerity, Library and Archives Canada is ready to (re)meet its public. That's according to an article in Quill & Quire, Canada's magazine about the book and publishing industry.

The article cites examples of LAC's resumed public programming after Guy Berthiaume's appointment as Librarian and Archivist of Canada.

While the situation has certainly improved can anyone be happy that the auditorium and other formerly public cultural spaces on the ground floor at 395 Wellington now only echoeswith memories of the vitality of years gone by?
