Collaborative agreement between Library and Archives Canada and the University of Toronto

The University of Toronto has signed a collaborative agreement with Library and Archives Canada (LAC) to share the expertise and knowledge of the two institutions.

Under this agreement, which lasts until 2022, LAC and the University of Toronto will work closely to support university progress, research methods and technological developments while promoting Canada’s documentary heritage.

The two institutions will benefit from collaboration in several areas, including rare books, special collections, research data, copyright and fair use of works. Ways of collaborating will include workshops, training programs, internships and exhibits, to benefit professionals at LAC and professors, students, librarians and archivists at the University of Toronto.  Some areas of common interest that will be explored include exhibitions of document or material from 18th century British General James Wolfe and items from the collection related to Commander Louis-Joseph de Montcalm-Gozon.
