Small public libraries and small libraries at post-secondary institutions have until December 11, 2018, to apply for financial assistance from Library and Archives Canada for OCLC (Online Computer Library Centre) services.
This support will allow the recipients to contribute to enriching the Canadian holdings catalogue and to providing worldwide access to the collections of Canadian libraries. OCLC services enable libraries to acquire copy cataloguing data, add information on their collections to the OCLC catalogue and receive interlibrary loan services.
All libraries that received financial assistance in the first funding cycle (from February 2018 to March 2019) will automatically continue to receive assistance for the period from April 2019 to March 2020 without having to reapply.
