Abstract

For some ten years the two professions have been engaged in in-depth reflection on the content of their missions in an environment transformed by the Internet and driven by the digital world. The place of libraries in society has indeed considerably increased while the audiences for archives broadened and diversified. A consensus was reached about the concepts of a one-stop service and of local, national and international networks. This implies an active convergence between libraries, archives, museums and other cultural institutions. Canada and Québec chose to merge their institutions in the field: Libraries and Archives Canada in 2004 and Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec between 2002 and 2006. But if the analysis and the inspiration are common, the implementation and the models chosen are distinct but equally interesting: while BAC chose integration, BAnQ preferred harmonization.ction
