Last fall some members of our Executive were provided an early tour of the Beaverbrook Library’s new Digitization Lab and were most impressed . The Kanata Library has the first such capability in the city of Ottawa.
The facility is now open for business and the library will be scheduling a special group tour for camera club members in the near future.
You may sign up for one of their monthly tours, by registering here.
In the meantime, you are welcome to start using the equipment in the lab by booking on their website.
