Abstract:

This book grew out of the symposium “Meetings with Books: Raymond Klibansky, Special Collections and the Library in the 21st Century,” held at McGill University, March 20, 2013.

Meetings with Books includes: a historical survey of McGill’s special collections by Richard Virr (McGill University); a tribute to humanist scholar and book collector Raymond Klibansky by Georges Leroux (Université de Montréal à Québec), Désirée Park (Concordia University, Montreal and Wolfson College, Oxford), Gerald Beasley (University of Alberta), and Ethel Groffier (Paul-André Crépeau Centre, McGill University); short essays on how historical book collections connect with current forms and directions in teaching, research, and learning in the digital age by Leslie Howsam (University of Windsor), Fiona A. Black (Dalhousie University), Julie E. Cumming (McGill University), Stéfan Sinclair (McGill University), Ann Marie Holland (McGill University), Anna Dysert (McGill University), Christopher Lyons (McGill University), Jillian Tomm (McGill University), and Gregory Bouchard (McGill University); and a keynote address by writer, anthologist, and essayist Alberto Manguel. The essays are complemented by a selection of more than fifty illustrated vignettes, highlighting the range and types of special collections at McGill University Library and Archives.
