Politics & Libraries
Is there any sort of coherent library policy in the US? It sure does not seem like it. At least NCLIS is going to be up to full strength on commissioners eventually.Canada on the other hand, though, gets interesting. My supervising faculty member had me looking at Bill C-36 in the 2nd session of the 37th Parliament of Canada which would amalgamate the National Library of Canada and Archives Canada into one entity. A very odd idea.And yet the bill is BACK...C-8 is its new number...under carry-over provisions, it is in the same place that C-36 died at prorogation that occured between the 2nd session and the 3rd session we are in now.Hmm. NLC likes the idea of gobbling up the archives it seems. I wonder how this will go eventually.
