The current embargo on acquisition purchases will end on 31 January.
As part of its modernization agenda, LAC has eight pathfinder projects underway to “show the demonstrability of their Framework model.” Short papers on four of these should be released within the next week:
- development of an integrated collection development/management plan for military acquisitions
- long-term loans: a citizen focused collaborative approach
- rethinking the stewardship of newspapers in the digital age
- exposing union catalog metadata via third parties.
Additional papers to be released before the end of December are:
- development of an integrated collection development/management plan for aboriginal information resources
- acquisition priorities: private archives
- LAC trusted digital repository: preserving the digital memory of Canada through collaboration and stakeholder engagement
- repurpose user-generated metadata.
