I didn’t post yesterday, as I confess to being bleary eyed and jet lagged from travelling and reception libations to think clearly. I’m attending the joint meetings of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and the American Association of Research Libraries (ARL) at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa. I thought Slawyers would be interested in three of these.
The first is project Alouette Canada, about which I posted in January, they now have a website which gives some basic information although the project is still under development.
The second is the Public Knowledge Project spearheaded by the amazing systems librarians at SFU library.
The third is one I had not heard about, but is actually quite related to Alouette Project, called Synergies
These are all really worth checking out – the digital train is definitely gaining momentum in Canada.
