LAC Signatures: Spring/Summer 2021

Signatures magazine “seeks to provide a look at LAC’s treasures and the expertise involved in acquiring, preserving and supporting access to our shared history for the benefit of present and future generations.”

From the table of contents below you can see the coverage is wide ranging. The articles that mention geneal* are bolded.

“Digital” gets 16 mentions,  “digitization” two. Neither of those two are in the article “LAC Looks Forward to the Next Decade.”  Will LAC not bring the legacy material we seek into the digital age? The present lack of digitization initiatives is not encouraging as the present is often the best predictor of the future. Surely LAC could find something more current to cite than the amalgamation of the National Library and Public Archives nearly two decades ago to show that “LAC is a world leader.”
