Findings and Recommendations

Introduction

In March 2005, the Management Board at LAC approved a Collection Development Framework that set out a new policy direction for the new institution's collection. The policy included a framework for collection development activities based on LAC's strategic directions and priorities. The framework provides an overview of the fundamental principles that guide collection development activities and the major directions for 2005 to 2010. It contains recommended measures in five strategic areas.

More specifically, the framework emphasizes the general priorities associated with the notion that LAC has one integrated collection only and to the development of an acquisition strategy that relies on collaboration with partners and other institutions in Canada. The general priorities for the collection and preservation of digital records are also provided.
