I visited the new Ottawa Archives on 101 Tallwood Dr. thursday May 26th and got a first look at it before its grand opening June 27th. I was very impressed and I urge you all to take a visit after it opens and go for their open house in July.
CBCNews reported in April on the archives move to its new location
"Workers are finishing up construction of a new $40-million facility in Centrepointe that will house the capital's archives and serve as the Ottawa Public Library's materials centre.
It took two years of planning and scores of special containers to move just a portion of the city's collection of archival photos and records to their new home. The small fraction of the millions of materials would stretch a kilometer if the shipping containers were placed end to end. And for years, it was all kept in a cramped vault on Sussex Drive."
