Access to government information varies widely and is, in many cases, changing rapidly. Attendees will gain an understanding of the American and Canadian government information contexts while also learning what each context means for contemporary library services. The question of how can librarians and information professionals of all types can meet new challenges in this area while also preparing for — and anticipating — future developments will also be addressed.


  1. Participants will learn about the history and development of the Canadian Depository Services Program and how the recent changes in Government of Canada guidelines and policies in Web standards have profoundly affected this service.

  2. Participants will learn about the Canadian Government Information Private LOCKSS Network initiative and its attempt to curate Government of Canada websites.
