The National Library of Canada was established by Parliament in 1953. The mandate of the Library was to preserve, promote and provide access to the published heritage of Canada. The Library worked to facilitate access to their collection of Canadiana as well as to assist other libraries with identifying Canadian material through the creation of a national bibliographic database. In 2004, the National Library of Canada merged with the National Archives of Canada to become Library and Archives Canada.
