Right now, the URLs given to photos from LAC are quite messy; hopefully, someday they will be standardized, so the "reference number" field can be used to create a URL. --Padraic 17:53, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Copyright status[edit]

While some parts of the LAC catalogue mention "no restrictions", LAC has made it clear that it has not given permission for free use. This does not apply to PD works, but does apply to those LAC images currently using Template:CopyrightedFreeUse. --Padraic 15:31, 5 May 2008 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} Could somebody please recategorize this template to Category:Source templates (remove the other category). Cheers --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 13:49, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

✓ Done. --The Evil IP address (talk) 14:21, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Instructions for use[edit]


Could someone add instructions for use to this page? The following is copied from Category:Images from Library and Archives Canada. Thanks! Themightyquill (talk) 17:17, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

"Please tag this images with {{LAC|x|y}}, where 'x' is the reproduction reference number, and 'y' is the MIKAN ID number. This will automatically place images in this category."

French version of the template[edit]

Is it possible to create a French version of this template? I have translated it, but being relatively new, I am not sure where it should be located and how it should be categorized. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ouvrard (talk • contribs) 17:09, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

And what are the implications for the category Images from Library and Archives Canada pages if there's a French template? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ouvrard (talk • contribs) 17:15, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
