The Military Museums Library and Archives (TMMLA) is among the largest military libraries in North America. TMMLA is embedded within The Military Museums complex, about 10 km south of campus. The Library serves both the public and the University of Calgary community. Our holdings include items from as early as the 17th century through to the modern era. Area strengths include: the Canadian military in international involvement from the Boer War through to Afghanistan, history of the Canadian navy, cold war intelligence, and wartime propaganda. No appointment is necessary to visit the library and visitors to just the library are not required to pay a museum entry fee.
Library and Archives Canada (LAC; French: Bibliothèque et Archives Canada) is the federal institution, tasked with acquiring, preserving, and providing accessibility to the documentary heritage of Canada. The national archive and library is the fifth largest library in the world. The LAC reports to the Parliament of Canada through the Minister of Canadian Heritage.
Several individuals and organizations voiced concerns about these changes. In 2011, the Canadian Association of University Teachers launched the Save Library & Archives Canada campaign. On May 2, 2012, the Canadian Library Association expressed concern about budget cuts to libraries, both in federal departments and at LAC. In August 2012, the Bibliographical Society of Canada wrote to every Member of Parliament urging them to ensure budget cuts do not compromise LAC's legislated mandate. In a follow-up letter to Heritage Minister James Moore in November 2012, the Society singled out the termination of interlibrary loans as a particularly harmful decision. Bibliophile blogger Nigel Beale characterizes LAC as \"Canada's national disgrace\" in his blog Literary Tourist. Academic Ian Milligan describes LAC's \"rhetoric of modernization\" as a \"smokescreen\" for cutting services in light of the insignificance of and limited accessibility to LAC's online collections on the ActiveHistory.ca website. Historian Valerie Knowles outlines the impact of government cutbacks at LAC and federal government libraries in her article \"Closing doors on Canada's history\" on the iPolitics website.
