Susan Crean on LAC

In fitting with the archival theme that occasionally pops up here I thought I'd share this. Susan Crean writes a wonderful piece in the Literary Review of Canada that combines a little archival romance, nostalgia and fair but frank criticism of the running of Library and Archves Canada. Even as an undergrad I regularly hear similar sentiments from my history student peers. The frustrations encountered while doing research (or attempting to do so) is a regular topic of conversation in after seminar chats. I cant speak to some of her comments on the managerial aspects of LAC but the sentiments I hear on the ground anecdotally back up her analysis.
