Canadiana.org: One of Canada’s oldest and newest digitization initiatives
AbstractCanadiana.org is a new independent, non-profit, alliance of partners, including Library and Archives Canada, from all parts of Canada’s cultural, heritage, research, broadcasting and publishing communities, chartered to raise funds, receive donations and grants and to act as the overall coordinator and facilitator for digitization initiatives and related enduring access services and preservation infrastructures. Working with Library and Archives Canada under the framework of the Canadian Digital Information Strategy, Canadiana.org has a ‘master plan’ to facilitate a coherent national digital information strategy. ) The community has developed a bilingual metadata toolkit to suit most types of material as an option for those who need it. The community also supports a powerful bilingual public access Indexing and Discovery Portal system (right now branded AlouetteCanada) to enhance the searching and discovery of local digital collections of all types across the country.
