Digitization of Publications relating to the Parliament of Canada

Subject: Digitization of Publications relating to the Parliament of Canada/Numérisation des publications se rapportant au Parlement du Canada

 A working paper on digitization of publications relating to the Parliament of Canada has been made available on the Parliamentary Internet. http://www2.parl.gc.ca/Sites/LOP/Digitization/index-e.asp

 

This document reviews the state of digitization of papers relating to the Parliament of Canada as of April 2009  in order to determine:

 

  • which published papers relating to the operations of Parliament have been digitized
  • by which organization;
  • where the digitized works are housed;
  • who is permitted access &
  • plans for future digitization

 

The goal is to help inform the development of a coherent strategy amongst the various stakeholders to digitize, make available and preserve over the long term, the corpus of Canadian publications relating to the operations of Parliament since 1867.

 

Comments, updates and suggested revisions are welcomed. 

 

Please forward comments to Michèle Robichaud, Canadian Government Information Specialist, Library of Parliament at robicm@parl.gc.ca, or Ian McDonald, Government and Law Specialist, Library and Archives Canada at Ian.mcdonald@lac-bac.gc.ca.
