    The Francophone Name Authority Program by Caitlin Horral, Julie Cardinal, and Danielle Poirier

    In June 2020, despite the pandemic, Canada launched a shared French-language authority program to collaboratively manage an authority file, Canadiana. The Francophone Name Authority Program is a collaboration between Library and Archives Canada, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec and 15 French-language Quebec university libraries. NACO served as a model for the governance structure, program and policies. The work that led to the creation of the program, its organization and the rules for contributing to the Canadiana authority file will be presented.
