Canadiana Preservation Collection of published materials closed until 2013

The Preservation Collection was created in 1988. It comprises original copies of all Canadian published materials held by Library and Archives Canada (LAC). This collection will be preserved for as long as practically possible through restricted access and the use of appropriate preservation measures such as deacidification and separate housing under special environmental conditions.

The Preservation Collection is now being prepared for storage in a new collection storage facility scheduled to open in 2013. Until that time, the Preservation Collection will be closed.
