Library and Archives Canada (LAC) would like to thank those who took part in the digital photography pilot project, Crowdsourcing Digitization. Fifteen people participated in this pilot and provided us with 20,000 images from LAC holdings which have been made available online. LAC clients who participated included:
 
Ross Barclay
James Busby
Lindsay Drumond
Lois Fenton
Clare Glassco
Kathy Grant
John Krug
Glenn Wright
 
Although this phase of the project has now ended, LAC will be pursuing other crowdsourcing opportunities in the future. Other projects to digitize items from the LAC collection are also ongoing.
 
The tripod and related equipment (sandbags, etc.) will remain available for loan to LAC clients. For information on borrowing this equipment, please visit the staff in the Textual Documents Consultation Room on the third floor at 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa or contact our services centre at 613-995-3991.
