When Roch Carrier, National Librarian of Canada, was in Charlottetown this winter speaking at the Confederation Centre lecture series, he mentioned how proud he was that they had made their Amicus online catalog freely available to anyone, both over the web and by Z39.50.

He is justifiably proud: the catalog is a work of web art. It has a simple and elegant design, it’s quick, and because it’s truly web-based you can link to specific search results or to specific records in their collection.

What a wonderful, free and public resource!
