Agreement with the Mexican national archives

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the General Archive of the Nation of the United Mexican States on collaboration between the two institutions.

This agreement encourages the exchange of information and expertise, and the development of programs and services, to benefit both cultural organizations and their users, more specifically:

  • sharing of information about systems, programs and services, digitization of collections, and management of digital resources;
  • exchange of publications and other reading materials of mutual interest; and
  • exchange of information relating to preservation, conservation and storage of rare and precious documentary heritage materials, and acquisition of resources of relevance to their respective national collections.

This collaboration agreement, which will be in effect until 2022, complements others that LAC has concluded with national memory institutions in China, Korea, France, the United Kingdom and Argentina. These efforts are in keeping with LAC’s evolving priorities as it strives to be on the leading edge of archival science, library science and new technologies, and to continue to play an active role in national and international networks.
