LAC Appoints New Librarian/Archivist

The Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has appointed the new Chief Librarian and Archivist. It is Dr. Daniel J. Caron, who transferes to the job from being the Senior Assistant Deputy Minister. He has been with the LAC since its inception a number of years ago.

His appointment was effective April 27, 2009.

Meanwhile, I see where the former Librarian/Archivist, Ian E. Wilson, has taken an appointment with the University of Waterloo at their new research facility in Stratford, Ontario.

He will be a strategic advisor to the new University of Waterloo Startford Institute of Arts and Culture. It will build the next generation in technology to digitize media products and services.

Both Dr. Caron and Ian are to be congratulated on their new positions.
