Government documents digitization registry | Registre des documents gouvernementaux numérisés

This project seeks to identify past, present, and future digitization projects for Canadian government documents. A digitization registry for government documents will provide an important forum for libraries and other knowledge institutions involved or interested in contributing to or learning from comprehensive digitized collections of Canada’s historic government publications. The registry will enable institutions to share information concerning whether a collection has been digitized (avoiding duplication and aiding in resource discovery), identify complementary collections, and locate potential partners for collaboration.

If you have content to contribute, please, enter the details directly in the form at the following link: http://bit.ly/gov-docs or send an email to gsg@uottawa.ca.

Le registre a pour but de répertorier les projets de numérisation de documents gouvernementaux canadiens, qu’ils soient terminés, en cours ou à venir. Le registre des documents numérisés offrira un forum utile aux bibliothèques et à toute autre institution du savoir qui participent à la création de grandes collections de documents historiques numérisés produits par les différents paliers gouvernementaux au Canada. Le registre constituera également une source d’apprentissage pour les institutions concernées. À l’aide du registre, les institutions pourront se renseigner sur l’avancement de la numérisation d’une collection (afin d’éviter des duplications et d’aider dans la recherche de ressources), trouver des collections complémentaires et rencontrer des partenaires de projets.

Si vous avez du contenu à partager, veuillez nous le faire parvenir au moyen du formulaire se trouvant au lien suivant : http://bit.ly/gov-docs ou par courriel à gsg@uottawa.ca.
