Good-bye to Canada’s DSP

As of December 31, 2013, the Depository Services Program for Canada, which has existed since 1927, will be ending. The DSP will only be capturing born digital  publications produced by government agencies. The DSP will no longer be a central distribution point for print publications. As a result of the termination of the DSP program, all  agreements with member depository libraries will be void meaning retention guidelines are no longer in effect- a major concern for librarians.   You can read more in the op-ed written by colleagues Amy Kaufman and Jeff Moon from  Queen’s University (Canada).
