Is there any way to integrate the City of Ottawa Archives with the OPL's holdings? I can get books from the USA on Inter-Library Loan, but I can't see what is available in our own City Archives.

I think at the Main Branch in downtown Ottawa there is actually a room devoted to Ottawa history, including books from the Archives. There are area maps and housing records. It's hours are much reduced compared to the actual library hours though. Would be nice to have this space open longer - I have never had a chance to go in there because of this.
