Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the signing of a collaborative agreement with the Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). The official signing took place during the 2019 Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) Fall General Meeting on November 6 in Montebello, Quebec.
This agreement will lead to new endeavours between the two institutions, as they pursue activities to facilitate the sharing of expertise and knowledge.
The signing of this new agreement can also only strengthen the links that already exist between them, as MUN is part of the Overlap Study for Canadian Federal Government Publications being sponsored by LAC and CARL, as well as being a partner in the Canadian Collective Print Strategy Working Group.
LAC now has several bilateral agreements in place with a wide range of Canadian universities from across the country such as the University of Victoria, the University of Ottawa, Dalhousie University, Queen’s University, the University of Toronto, Université Laval, Université de Sherbrooke and the École de bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l’information at the Université de Montréal.
These collaborations are in keeping with LAC's priorities, as it strives to be on the leading edge of archival science, library science and related new technologies.
