You probably heard this hit the news this AM
RCMP are dealing with a huge amount of material – some unique some yardsale and very thing between.
They have been in touch with individual libraries when they have found some sort of identification on items which leads them to a specific collection.
SMU, MSVU, DAL have all been contacted. I don’t have contact names for the libraries or any sense if they have been spreading the word within the library community.
RCMP are encouraging heritage orgs that have experienced theft to get in touch with them preferably with a theft report/image of the items in question.
Thefts are from the Atlantic Region so the word needs to be widespread.
We have stacks of images from them – I’m looking at putting them up on our website rather than continuous circulating large batches of images – more keep coming.
