The deficiencies, plus conservation, rehabilitation, and upgrading, were addressed when a major, $52 million renovation was researched in 1996 and undertaken between 2002 and 2006.  Public Works and Government Services Canada contracted the Thomas Fuller Construction Company (operated by the building designer's great-grandsons) to manage a project that fixed leaks in the roof and crumbling mortar in the walls on the exterior,   as well as extensive repairs to the wood and plaster work and the installation of climate control systems on the interior.  Also done at the time was a nine metre deep excavation of the bedrock beneath the library building, in order to provide more storage space, mechanical areas, and a link to an existing loading dock.  The project used precision survey, laser measurement, photogrammetry , and the then fledgling technology of Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application .  After four years of work, the library was opened to the public, with tours of the library resuming on 5 June 2006,  though Thomas Fuller Construction filed a $21 million lawsuit against the Crown for cost overruns. 
The Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 is undoubtedly one of most defining events in the Hungarian history, yet - as the political, social and economic circumstances under which it was negotiated were highly versatile and complex - it is still prone to contradictory interpretations and provokes strong feelings on part of historians and the general public alike. On 26 September 2017 in the Upper House Chamber of the Parliament an international history conference - organised by the Directorate for Cultural Affairs - will scrutinize the antecedents, course and aftermath of this landmark event.
