Leslie Weir Announced as Next Librarian and Archivist of Canada

Awesome Choice! Leslie Weir Announced as Next Librarian and Archivist of Canada Here’s the press release: The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism, announced today the appointment of Ms. Leslie Weir as Librarian and Archivist of Canada for a four-year term, effective August 30, 2019. Ms. Weir will be the first woman to become Librarian and Archivist of Canada since the merging of these two institutions. Ms. Weir was the university librarian at the University of Ottawa from 2003 to 2018. Prior to her tenure at the university, early in her career, she held positions at the National Library of Canada and the Statistics Canada Library. Following the retirement of Guy Berthiaume in late June the position of Librarian and Archivist of Canada presumably will be filled on an acting basis for two months.

Doug Ford Announces Reversal of Municipal Cuts

This morning’s announcement appears to be a 1-yr delay for in-year cuts directly impacting municipalities that were made in this year’s budget. Specifically for ground/land ambulance services, child care and public health.   This reversal is for the year. Stated that they are giving the municipalities more time and they will work them. Whether this opens the door to any changes in the cuts is unclear but it assures they won’t apply for this year. Ford maintained that the government must continue to maintain the deficit and they will balance the budget in the next five years. Said that many of the municipalities are eager to accept the government’s help for the external audit funding. We will await further information, but it does not appear to extend to any other of the announced cuts.

Library architecture and design: a worldwide guide

Each project here, from Pereira’s Geisel Library in San Diego, to Toyo Ito’s Tama Art Library in Tokyo is a case study on the modern history – and future success – of the library as a public resource and a place for ideas and contemplation. Jorge Luis Borges once wrote: ‘I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library’ – we’re inclined to...
