Canada: Library, archives resist move

Canada’s newly merged National Library and National Archives are refusing to give up their prestigious parliamentary address. […] Officials say the big problem with the offer is timing. The two institutions — now called the Library and Archives of Canada — are still in the throes of merging their operations and couldn’t be ready to move by the fall occupancy date. Besides, they say, it’s impossible to determine how much and what kind of space is needed until the merger is completed.
Canada is the first country to merge its national library and archives, a move the Chrétien government said would boost the sagging visibility, relevance and accessibility of the two nearly invisible institutions.
