I don't know if this is the right way to go. I understand and agree that, at the moment, no one has access to the documents. However, as I understand it, the Library receives documents at the last minute in PDF, which is not an electronic format.
So it seems to me that the most logical way to help the Library people publish all these documents would be for them to be able to receive documents from the various departments in electronic form as they go along. That seems to me to be a much more logical and reasonable solution.
Mr. Rodrigue also said that they do not have the tool they need to convert all documents in a consistent way. If that tool does not exist, it is not going to be invented in a month or so. If they do not have it, it would at least help them if all departments were required to send their documents in electronic format as they go along and not on the day they are sent, which is too difficult.
Let us put ourselves in their shoes: even if they were forced to do it in 30 days, it could not be done.
