Digitization of Canada's heritage left to Google

Michael Geist, Toronto Star, Sept 08, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"Canada seems stuck at the digitization starting gate. Library and Archives Canada was given responsibility for the issue, but was unable to muster the necessary support for a comprehensive plan. The Department of Canadian Heritage... has shown little interest in crafting a vision similar to Europeana." I know staff working in those departments would enthusiastically participate in such work, were they given the means and the mandate, and they certainly have the skills and experience to do so.
