The National Archival Development Program (NADP) was designed to complement the new mandate of the Library and Archives Canada (LAC), and the shifting priorities of the archival community. The five-year program (from 2006/07 to 2010/11) provides contribution funding to archival institutions for projects, and to the Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) for administrative and capacity-building tasks.
LAC is conducting a summative evaluation of NADP, and has hired PRA Inc., an independent research firm, to conduct this research. An important element of this evaluation is to interview individuals from the four different stakeholder groups, who have been associated with the program. This includes representatives from Library and Archives Canada, the Canadian Council of Archives, Provincial/Territorial (P/T) Archival Councils, and program recipients (including municipal, academic and private institutions).
This interview should take 45 minutes to an hour, and will be bilingual. With your permission, we will tape-record it for the purposes of note-taking. All tape-recordings will be erased at the end of the study. Everything you say in the interview is confidential; we will not quote you in our report or associate your name with any comments you make.
We realize that you may not be in a position to address some of the questions. If you cannot answer a question, please let us know. Additionally, your participation in this interview is voluntary and you may withdraw from the study at any time.
