Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is ready to begin the migration of National Union Catalogue (NUC) holdings data to the Online Computer Library Centre (OCLC). In order to prepare the files for transfer, LAC is permanently ending the loading of all holdings by participating Canadian Libraries into AMICUS, effective July 5, 2017. For further information, please visit the National Union Catalogue libraries page on our website.
As announced in March 2017, LAC has signed a contractual agreement with OCLC to replace its current library management system AMICUS.
The NUC is made up of bibliographic descriptions and location information for resources that include printed books, computer files, sound recordings, videos, maps, microforms, newspapers, and works in large print and Braille.
