Marking 35 years since the 1978 establishment of Canadiana.org as the Canadian Institute for Historical Microreproductions, 2013 is the occasion to recognize and celebrate our remarkable milestones and achievements in digitization, preservation, and access.
As a first-time exhibitor at the American Library Association annual conference (Chicago, IL), Canadiana.org wishes to thank all participants for the exceptional interest shown in our displays—a clear demonstration of the close cultural and family connections between Canada and the United States, as well as the goodwill and spirit of collaboration between our respective library communities.
Six distinguished librarians, scholars, and archivists were elected to the 2013-15 Board of Directors. This volunteer body, composed of dedicated scholars and librarians, is entrusted with the long-term achievement of Canadiana’s mission. We are grateful for their continuing guidance and effort in positioning the organization as a leader in digitization, preservation, and access.

At the Association of Parliamentary Libraries in Canada annual conference, July 3-4 in Ottawa, Canadiana.org outlined strategies for long-term, sustainable funding of digitization projects, in keeping with the overarching theme on the future of legislative libraries, the use of social media, handling the information deluge, weeding, the impact of copyright and parliamentary privilege, and other matters.
