LAC disruption and reduction of service

Its always a good idea to order materials you want to consult not on open shelves before making a trip to Library and Archives Canada. Imagine arriving to consult a rare book and finding its in the Preservation Collection where, as of February 1, 2010, retrieval will be only once a week on Tuesday.

LAC have also announced that during the period between February 1 and March 31, 2010, the Rare Book Collection will be moved to the LAC Preservation Centre in Gatineau and will not be available for consultation.
