The latest news from LAC.

Here is the announcement.

Services to the public: Library and Archives Canada moves closer to resuming regular operations
Library and Archives Canada (LAC) continues its gradual return to regular operations. If you visit one of our service points on or after March 22, you will see a marked increase in our capacity. These new openings are available for booking now, using our online reservation system.

The health and safety of employees and clients remains our priority. As a result, current health measures will be maintained until further notice. Visit our Keeping you safe during your visit page for details on each of our service points and the services offered.

Please note that remote reference and genealogy services are still available. Contact us by using our Ask Us a Question or Ask Us a Genealogy Question forms, or by calling 1-866-578-7777 (option 8; toll-free in Canada and the United States).

Comment: I’m hearing that many of the existing open workstations are not being used. It could be they are booked and then people don’t show. If your experience is different please let me know in a comment.

Why would LAC not relax the requirement to book two weeks in advance and allow researchers, especially those from out of town, to reserve additional times?
