What's New

Canadiana Authorities

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce a new service: Canadiana Authorities. This application searches over 660,000 Canadiana name, title and name/title authority records. These name and title authorities represent standardized entries for Canadian authors/creators or issuing bodies, and for uniform titles and series titles. These records were formerly available in the Canadiana CD-Rom product. The records are exported from LAC's existing system, AMICUS, however this new application provides functionality not available for these kinds of records in AMICUS.

Canadiana Authorities will feature:

  • keyword searching functionality
  • the ability to save LAC's name, name/title, uniform title and series title authority records in MARC 21, MARC XML or MADS
  • access without registration

For more information, please see Canadiana: The National Bibliography of Canada.

The contributions of many LAC staff members were instrumental in the success of this project and their efforts are much appreciated.
