“The Royal Society of Canada has established an eleven-member expert panel to investigate the status and future of Canada’s libraries and archives.”
The Status and Future of Canada’s Libraries and Archives
Since the 1950s debate has raged about the impact of new technologies on print culture in the broadest sense and on the publishing industry, libraries, and archives in particular. Succinctly put, “The Death of the Book” has been both proclaimed and denied. Meanwhile, notions of what constitutes a library or an archive have been challenged and transformed by new communications competencies and needs. In response to these realities, the Royal Society of Canada is establishing an Expert Panel on “The Status and Future of Canada’s Libraries and Archives”.
