AlouetteCanada: Canada's National Open Digitization Initiative   go to paper

Brian Bell, AlouetteCanada, Canada

As society shifts increasingly to a digital, Web-based environment, Canadians have felt that it is vital to have a national vision and a comprehensive plan both to present our cultural heritage on-line to our citizens and to the world and to ensure free and enduring access to that heritage. AlouetteCanada (http://www.alouettecanada.ca/) was formed to meet this need.
