​LAC to launch a new, user-centric website

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is excited to announce that its brand new website is nearly ready to launch. The new website will be simple, intuitive and more accessible, and it will replace the existing LAC website (

In building the new website, LAC focused on the following:

  • Findability: consistent and intuitive design
  • Navigation: based on themes, topics and tasks
  • Themes: collection, services and corporate
  • Plain language: easy to understand

The new website is based on the latest research on user experience, and on feedback and suggestions from the public, researchers and staff.

This is just the beginning of what will be a process of continuous improvement. LAC will analyze how people use the new website and adapt accordingly. Each page will have a feedback section to help guide future improvements to the site.

LAC users will automatically be sent to the new website once it is live. In the meantime, check out our blog series to find out more:
