Canada's National Library

Haut de la page

A cinematic tour of Canada's National Library shows that this huge structure in the centre of Ottawa is more than a repository for books. The history of Canada is housed here, preserved in old letters, periodicals, music, and books of every description. A highlight of the film is a look at the fully automated reference service, which can respond in minutes to the steady flow of inquiries the Library receives from the public.

1981, 17 min 12 s
