Changes in direction at Library and Archives Canada highlight a more fundamental crisis: traditional archival operations risk obsolescence in the face of technological transformation. The linear approach to acquisition, preservation, and access is premised on a physical, custodial model of service: archival materials must be housed in archival institutions in order to receive archival care. This custodial orientation is exacerbated in Canada because the total archives philosophy, and the subsequent archival system approach, have both encouraged the unattainable dream that archival management can be encyclopedic, collective, and controlled. How can archivists acquire, preserve, and make available a valuable collection of archives in a digital age when the nature of digital records is that they are dispersed, unregulated, and selective? A new strategy will help the Canadian archival community achieve its ultimate goal, which is to help society create and capture records in order to support accountability, foster identity, and protect memory.
