Library and Archives Canada Working to Eliminate Huge Backlog

    Jan 05, 2015

    An audit found that two years after Library and Archives Canada (LAC) shelved its $15.4 million custom-built digital repository that proved too expensive to run, it has a backlog of approximately 98,000 boxes of unsorted files and is not prepared for what is expected to be a deluge of federal government digital files it is expecting to receive over the next few years.

    An LAC spokesman said the institution is “reallocating internal resources and taking a more aggressive approach to eliminate this backlog by the end of 2015, and putting in place measures to prevent future backlogs.”
