Welcome to the Library and Archives Canada blog!

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to present our new blog, a project developed by the Resource Discovery Sector.

Monitored and answered by multidisciplinary teams, the Library and Archives Canada Blog provides useful tips and recommends tools to help you discover your documentary heritage and navigate the LAC website.

This four-month pilot project is just one of a number of modernization initiatives that focuses on providing you with quick and easy access to the LAC collection. The blog also connects you with LAC and other people who share an interest in Canadian history.

For more information, we invite you to visit the About the Blog section or contact us at blog@bac-lac.gc.ca. You may also subscribe to our RSS feed.

We hope you enjoy the blog and we wish you many happy discoveries!

  1. Welcome to the blogosphere.

    What is the proper procedure to address a topic on which LAC had not posted, such as the sad lack of any newspaper digitization initiative at LAC in any way comparable to those being undertaken by comparable institutions in other countries?

  2. Great to see that LAC finally has a blog – but I must say I died a lttle inside when I read it was a ‘4 month pilot project’. Really? In 2011 a blog is still a Pilot Project??

  3. Thank you so much; this is a very valuable service and a perfect way to learn of your new collections. I hope that you continue past the four month trial.

  4. Is this blog a good way to find out quickly if I can get access online to Cabinet minutes for the constitutional patriation negotiations in November 1981 – 30 years ago? Have just done a search and no luck. Writing a book chapter for the 30 year retrospective on this period and it would be great if I did not have to travel to Ottawa to access the Cabinet minutes from that period.

    Please let me know – many thanks!
