An overview of the presentation being made by Marie-Louise
New Directions for the Canadian Genealogy Centre: from the Virtual to the
The Canadian Genealogy Centre (CGC) is a program of Library and Archives
Canada, the institution born of the transformation of the former National
Library of Canada and National Archives of Canada. The vision of the CGC is
to promote the discovery of our roots and family history as key elements of
Canadian heritage, and to promote genealogy, archives and library resources
as tools for life-long learning.
Launched as an electronic entity in 2003, the CGC will also, by late Fall
2005, become a physical entity at 395 Wellington Street as reference and
genealogy services, and the consultation of both library and archival
documents are streamlined in new public spaces.
This presentation is designed to:
* Provide information on the transformation process underway related
to services offered by LAC;
* Share details on changes to reference and consultation spaces soon
to be made at 395 Wellington Street (and creation of the physical CGC);
* Share information on changes to the LAC and CGC web sites;
* Engage with participants in a dialogue to learn about each others
needs/efforts with respect to genealogical and family history research, and
the diversity of Canadas heritage.
