This report describes the digitization efforts of the Library of Parliamentary and was recently posted to their web site and blogged about yesterday by "Library Boy" (aka Michel-Adrien Sheppard, Supreme Court Reference Librarian).
"The goal [of the working paper] is to help inform the development of a coherent strategy amongst the various stakeholders to digitize, make available and preserve over the long term, the corpus of Canadian publications relating to the operations of Parliament since 1867."
This working paper provides a "... 'snapshot' of the state of digitization of papers relating to the Parliament of Canada as of March 2009", with an overview regarding:
- which published papers relating to the operations of Parliament have been digitized;
- by which organization;
- where the digitized works are housed;
- who is permitted access;
- plans for future digitization.
