LAC – 2023-2027 Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy

On Thursday, November 2, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) tabled its 2023–2027 Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy (DSDS) to Parliament.

LAC is committed to the following goals:

  • Advance reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and take action on inequality
  • Reduce waste and transition to zero-emission vehicles
  • Take action on climate change and its impacts

    expected hoped to see digitization initiatives that would mean clients would have less need to travel to an LAC site for research. Sadly, there’s no large-scale digitization initiative. No digitization on demand initiative. The closest it gets is:

    “While documents pertaining to residential schools have already been digitized, the current initiative concentrates on digitizing and creating culturally appropriate descriptions of millions of pages of documents pertaining to day schools.”

Opportunity lost.
