New Library and Archives Canada Website Launched

The website of Library and Archives Canada has been redesigned.

According to the press release:

"LAC houses Canada's national collection of books, historical documents, government records, photos, films, maps, music and much more. The LAC website is one of the most popular federal government websites, with over one million visits per month".

"The goal of the new design is to provide Canadians with better access to LAC's rich and varied holdings. It has been created with the specific aim of making it easier for the public to find the information they need quickly and efficiently. At the same time, the design will allow LAC's many regular clients -- such as librarians, archivists and genealogical researchers -- to continue to use the collection effectively".

"The new design is also compliant with the recently released 'Common Look and Feel for the Internet 2.0' standards that govern the presentation of Government of Canada websites".
The Common Look and Feel Standards, which can be found on the site of the Treasury Board Secretariat, cover web page naming conventions on federal government websites, accessibility for people with disabilities, usability, web page formats (navigation, layout, banners, language, etc.), and e-mail address conventions.
