Description

New Brunswick Bibliography Symposium : Revealing and Preserving our Published Heritage

UNB Libraries will host a New Brunswick Bibliography Symposium at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton Campus, on Thursday, March 22, 2018. The symposium will bring together scholars, librarians, archivists, and others interested in bibliography and book history, who are either active in the field already or interested in undertaking research that can contribute to building the New Brunswick record.

The keynote address at this event will be delivered by Peter McNally, Professor Emeritus, McGill University, and 2011 recipient of the Bibliographical Society of Canada's prestigious Tremaine Medal. Prof. McNally's address is titled, "New Brunswick's Contribution to the World of Knowledge: Collecting and Organizing the Published Record." The symposium will offer a varied program of speakers on current and prospective research in New Brunswick bibliography. A final agenda will be emailed to you prior to the event.

The symposium is free and lunch will be provided. We do however require registration.
