20th Anniversary: Library and Archives Canada newspaper failure

On 7-8 October 2002, the National Library of Canada, the forerunner of Library and Archives Canada, held an event, “Canadian Newspapers Online: A National Consultation,” in the Auditorium at 395 Wellington Street.

What happened as a result? Twenty years of LAC inaction speak for themselves.

Here, for the record, is the agenda for that event, the last time LAC did anything along the lines of its supposed leadership role within the Decentralized Plan for Canadian Newspapers.
