Welcome to the Disc-O-Logue Web site. Disc-O-Logue was a catalogue of French-language popular music recordings available in Canada published between 1962 and 1979. This site was developed by Library and Archives Canada (LAC) using the archive acquired from the creator of Disc-O-Logue, Louise Lamothe. Part of the archive, a card catalogue of 90,000 song titles maintained by Madame Lamothe until 1985, has been automated. The resulting database is the heart of this Web site. There is also information on Louise Lamothe and her work as a copyright activist, an interview with Madame Lamothe, a short history and description of Disc-O-Logue, an introduction to the steps involved in creating Disc-O-Logue, a researcher's guide to the contents of the database including searching tips, sample searches, reproductions of album covers representative of recordings included in the database and information on "Best Sellers" of that era.
