Turn out was pretty good once again for OLITA’s AGM – and I don’t think it’s just the free food since there are several other receptions going on at the same time.
The AGM is mainly the time to announce the OLITA Technological Innovation Award.
“OurOntario.ca is an impressive and ambitious undertaking to centralize access to the digital collections of this province’s libraries, archives, museums and more. It is innovative in both its scope and its pursuit of providing a measure of regional search to a field dominated by large foreign corporations.”
