What We Have Lost: What We Stand to Lose
The Future of Archives and Archivists in Canada
Wednesday January 16, 2013
City of Ottawa Archives
100 Tallwood Drive
Since the 1970s an archival system has been built up in Canada and now it is threatened by recent funding cuts and program decisions at the federal level. This panel will examine the future of archives and archivists in Canada in the light of the decisions Ottawa has taken.
Our Panelists will address the following topics:
- The effects of the disappearance of the National Archival Development Program Patti Harper, Department Head, Archives and Research Collections, Carleton University
- The new Library and Archives Canada: will it be able to serve its constituencies? James L. Turk, Executive Director, Canadian Association of University Teachers.
- The new archivist: is digital and web all we need to know? Jim Burant, Adjunct professor (Art History) at Carleton University and former manager of Art and Photography Archives at Library and Archives Canada and Laurie Dougherty, Archivist of the Arnprior McNab/Braeside Archives
A question and answer period will follow the presentations.
