LAC Notes

The new schedule of opening hours at Library and Archives Canada is in operation. I'm told there were people lined up to take advantage at 9am on Monday. The whole building seemed busy while I was there on Tuesday. All three of the new microform reader-printers were in use; the book I ordered arrived promptly; people were being served efficiently on the 3rd floor despite occasional line-ups for service.

Over a sandwich I learned that despite digitization initiatives there has been no decline in requests for archival boxes in the building.
