Ancesty Library Edition

Offer full access for clients who have registered and set up user profiles so that they can access their family trees using Ancestry.ca and access to the program outside the library through the OPL website.

If someone has access to the internet at home and can use the computers at the library, why would they have to login through the OPL website? What advantage would that bring, exactly?

Since Ancestry can be purchased by individuals, this ideas would be a poor use of taxpayers money. I have no problem with having Ancestry available in the libraries but providing access in everybody's home is not the responsibility of the OPL.

If we could access Ancestry and all their records thru the OPL site at home as we can at the library, many seniors who cannot get to the library and cannot afford the prohibitive Ancestry membership fee would benefit.
