Guidance and Information

What should you find in a Canmore record?
Canmore is there for the benefit of its users, but we know that some of the records are more usable than others. We know that there is great variety in the quality of information, from very good and detailed to quite poor. We want to make the Record as useful as possible for everyone who consults it.
