New Virtual Exhibitions

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has several new virtual exhibitions in store for you. Here is a preview of what we have to offer.

Cool Canada


Did you know that the first chocolate bar was made in New Brunswick? Or that the world's largest cheese came from Granby, Quebec? These are just a couple of the interesting facts you will discover in Cool Canada.

Drawing on material from the Library and Archives Canada collection, the site presents the fascinating people, places, inventions, events and achievements that make Canada cool!


Written in Stone


It came as a surprise to many when the Literary Review of Canada listed Geological Survey of Canada: Report of Progress from Its Commencement to 1863 as one of the 100 most important Canadian books ever written.

Although considered a work that "changed our country's psychic landscape," according to the Literary Review, you will not find it in your local bookstore. Fortunately, LAC has brought that work to life in Written in Stone. This virtual exhibition profiles the life of William E. Logan, founder of the Geological Survey of Canada, providing the entire text of the Report, along with Logan's notebooks, daily journals and maps.
