The following announcement just came out and should interest many of you.
" As of this morning, the fall 2014 Report of the Auditor General of Canada is available online at: http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/parl_lpy_e_39214.html. Chapter 7, entitled Documentary Heritage of the Government of Canada is focused on Library and Archives Canada (LAC). LAC accepts the four recommendations made by the Auditor General."
"Actions have already been undertaken to address issues raised in the report regarding records disposition authorities and backlog reduction, as well as LAC's ongoing work to increase digital capacity and become a trusted digital repository. LAC is also working with other Government of Canada departments and agencies to assess the increasing quantity of digital records that they will transfer to LAC in the coming years."
"Moving forward, LAC will keep stakeholders apprised of its work to respond to the recommendations of the Auditor General."
