Update on Services Cuts at Library and Archives Canada

Thanks to John Reid from Anglo-Celtic Connections for this item.

On October 23, Canadian Historical Association President Craig Heron and representatives from 9 other organizations had a meeting with the National Archivist and members of his senior management team.

Ian Wilson confessed that the reduction in hours without consultation was a mistake. He listened carefully to the interventions from delegation members and undertook to review the decision on opening hours with his management team within the context of a mid-year organizational review, the results of which should be apparent by the time of the first meeting of the LAC Services Advisory Board which will likely be held toward the end of November.

A press release from the CHA will follow.
