Impact of LAC cuts to Inter-library loan

There is an excellent article in today's Ottawa Citizen newspaper ... by a citizen of Ottawa who actually 'gets' what a disastrous decision this is.

As someone recently asked me "And where is the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society in all this?" We can hope they are being proactive. No, I guess that would be 'reactive' as the decisions have all been made... almost a year ago. What a shame!

Oh, and by the way, LAC has announced it will be digitizing an indexed version of the 1906 Canadian census. GREAT! That will make the fourth 'group' to have done this. We don't need money wasted on more of the 'done'. We need NEW!! Lord help us ...
