Collection Development Framework for Library and Archives Canada

Collection Development Framework for Library and Archives Canada

Important reading for Canadian Libraries. Five key directions are outlined

-Creation of a single LAC collection
-Collection of digital materials
-Focus on Aboriginal materials
-Focus on multicultural materials
-Development of a coordinate national approach

While the LAC remains dedicated to the collection of Canadiana, a quick read did not show any mention of academic materials. Many involved in the Synergies project understand the threat poised by the ephemeral nature of digital publication to Canadian scholarship.
