  19. 19. Library of Parliament People -On May 6th, 1885, a resolution was passed in the House of Commons that “the offices and servants of the Library of Parliament should consist of; two officers, one to be called the General Librarian, the other the Parliamentary Librarian, and to hold a joint commission as “librarians of Parliament” and to have equal powers…” -This was amended in 1955. The Parliamentary Librarian was given “the control and management of the library.” While the position of General Librarian was changed to that of Associate Parliamentarian Librarian who would “perform the duties and functions of Parliamentarian Librarian during his absence, illness or other incapacity, or during a vacancy in the office of Parliamentarian Librarian” - http://parl.gc.ca/parlinfo/compilations/OfficersAndOfficials/ProSenate ceduralOfficersAndSeniorOfficials_Library.aspx Peace Tower Back to tour Close menu

  21. 21. Library of Parliament Process - The Library of Parliament offers information, reference and research services to parliamentarians and their staff, parliamentary committees, associations and delegations, and senior Senate and House of Commons officials. - The skilled staff handles hundreds of requests for information and reference assistance daily, often responding within hours. Specialists in law, economics and other fields provide research and analysis services concerning legislation and public policy issues. -Through its services, publications and collections, the Library of Parliament tries to anticipate the needs of a busy Parliament. Current issue reviews, backgrounders, compilations, legislative summaries, reading lists and finding aids are just some of the Library’s information tools.Senate -http://www.parl.gc.ca/About/Parliament/Publications/LOP/lop-e.asp Peace Tower Back to tour Close menu

  23. 23. Library of Parliament Place -The Library of Parliament originated in the legislative libraries of Upper and Lower Canada, created in the 1790s. These libraries were amalgamated when Upper and Lower Canada were united in 1841. -The Library building, designed in the High Victorian Gothic Revival style by Thomas Fuller and Chilion Jones, opened in 1876. Its circular shape and the use of galleries and alcoves were the inspiration of the first Parliamentary Librarian, Alpheus Todd. He recommended that the building be “spacious and lofty” and wisely advised that it be separated from the Centre Block by a corridor to protect it from fire. -Flames threatened the Library again on February 3, 1916. The fire destroyed most of the Centre Block, but the Library’s iron doors isolated it from the blaze. In 1952, a fire broke out in the cupola of the Library itself, causing extensive smoke and waterSenate damage.
