Results-based Management and Accountability Framework

For LAC's Management of the Documentary
Heritage of Interest to Canada
Program Activity 1.2

3.2 Logic Model

This section presents the logic model for Activity 1.2 that was developed in a workshop held with senior staff members of LAC's DHC, including the ADM of the Sector and the Directors General of the CASC Branch, PH Branch and the Care of Collection Branch.

3.2.1 Program activities and outputs

The Sub Activities and Sub-sub Activities of Activity 1.2 are described in Section 2.0 of this report. These were derived from LAC's PAA, and were not subject to review or revision at the workshops that were held during the development of this RMAF. Outputs related to Sub-Activities:

  • Analogue and digital documentary heritage relates to S.-A. 1.2.1: Development of the collection: Selecting and acquiring documentary heritage. Government Records Branch of Activity 1.1 is also contributing to the outcome of Activity 1.2 in acquisition and description
  • Descriptions, National bibliography, Numerical Identification Systems, and National databases of library and archive holdings relate to S.-A. 1.2.2: Description of the collection: Creating and adapting descriptions of documentary documents.
  • Items stored, treated, copied and migrated output relate to S.-A. 1.2.3: Care of collection: Preserving and copying documentary heritage collection.

3.2.2 Immediate outcomes

The outputs feed into immediate outcomes. LAC selecting and acquiring documents and managing International Standard Number are expected to result in the capture and identifications of Canadian publications and the LAC collection being representative of the Canadian society. LAC creating and adapting descriptions, national bibliography, and databases of holdings is expected to result in the sharing with LAC partners and clients of quality and consistent descriptions. Items stored, treated, copied and migrated are expected to result in the long-term preservation of LAC collection Outputs feed into immediate outcomes.

  • Analogue and digital documentary heritage, Descriptions, and Number of ISBN-ISSN-ISMN outputs feed into immediate outcome Canadian publications are captured and identified
  • Analogue and digital documentary heritage and National bibliography outputs feed into immediate outcome LAC collection is representative of Canadian society.
  • Descriptions, and National databases of library and archive holdings outputs feed into immediate outcome Quality and consistent descriptions are share with partners and clients.
  • Items stored, treated, copied and migrated output feed into immediate outcome Long-term preservation of LAC collection.

3.2.3 Intermediate outcomes

  • Immediate outcomes feed into Intermediate outcomes.
  • Immediate outcomes 'LAC collection is representative of the Canadian society', 'Quality and consistent descriptions are share with partners and clients', and 'Long-term preservation of LAC collection' feed into intermediate outcome Effective management of the LAC collection.
  • Immediate outcome 'Quality and consistent descriptions are share with partners and clients' feed into intermediate outcome Effective/improve access to LAC collection.
  • Immediate outcomes 'Quality and consistent descriptions are share with partners and clients' and 'Canadian publications are captured and identified' feed into intermediate outcome Contribution to efficient national and international information systems.

3.3.4 Ultimate outcome

Activity 1.2 has the ultimate outcome of collecting, describing and safeguarding LAC collection for present and future Canadians. The outcome is not only geared toward Canadians, but includes those with an interest in Canada. All of the intermediate outcomes in the logic model contribute to this ultimate outcome.
