Library and Archives Canada Public Consultation on Voilà, the National Union Catalogue

Posted in Professional Development

As part of its strategic priorities, Library and Archives Canada supports a strong and connected Canadian library community through enhanced collaboration and services to support in selecting and describing new Canadian works for their collections. We will be hosting two in-person events in Manitoba in May 2019 to engage with your library community and hear your feedback so that we can better develop a vision, policy, and strategy for Voilà, Canada’s National Union Catalogue.

  • On May 13th, 2019, we will be in Brandon at Brandon Public Library at 1:00 pm 
  • On May 14th, 2019, we will be in Winnipeg at the Millennium Library at 10:30 am
We will be sharing some updates about LAC and engaging with the Canadian library community to develop the future of Voilà and achieve a representative National Union Catalogue by maximizing participation of Canadian libraries.
We invite you to attend one of these meetings to help us better understand your needs, challenges, and aspirations regarding the National Union Catalogue.
Should you be unable to attend this meeting, or you simply have more to share with us, Library and Archives will also have several discussion questions regarding these topics open on PlaceSpeak (more information to follow when available).
