Archivists' Trek: TOMORROW!

Tomorrow is an important day for those of us interested in history, culture, and Canada.  The Archivists' Trek is taking place to protest cuts to Canadian culture, specifically those affecting Library and Archives Canada and the myriad programmes that work to fund institutions charged with preserving our history.  Here is a pretty awesome comic explaining why we need to reverse these terrible cuts:

As it turns out, I'm in beautiful Ottawa right now.  I'm writing a paper that I researched at the very archives that need protecting.  Tomorrow, after a park-sit and a delicious sandwich at Dirienzo's, I'm going to head over to the archives and protest the hell out of this thing.  I'll do my best to take horrible cellphone pictures and post them here and on twitter. 

Hope to see you there.

  1. I would've loved to join the archivists' trek. Are there actual archivists doing document scanning services who joined?
