Initiative for Equitable Library Access

The cultural/heritage communities are not the only ones concerned with the actions of Library and Archives Canada.

A letter dated February 8 to Daniel Caron is posted on behalf of the Coalition of Organizations of Blind, Deaf-blind, and Partially-Sighted Rights Holders of Canada asking for an accounting of $3,000,000.00 allocated to to LAC develop a blueprint for making public library services more accessible to Canadians with print disabilities. The letter states that there were no results and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind is now having to repeat the work.
