Historical Perspectives on Canadian Publishing

>> Saturday, June 27, 2009

SO much to write about when I find the time & energy .... am finished my summer school adventures and now embarking on an editing project in addition to the many other things I need to get done.

One of the things that came out of the EMiC course though, was that we had an opportunity to learn about the Historical Perspectives on Canadian Publishing project, which is a collaboration by The William Ready Division of Archives and Research Collections at McMaster University Library (Hamilton, ON), the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library at the University of Toronto, and Queen’s University Archives (Kingston, ON).

One part of the project involves the preparation of case studies by graduate students - and yes, even though I have bunches of stuff to get done this month, and even though the due date is sooner rather than later, I volunteered to write one. It is a good opportunity to do archival work, to learn about a particular Canadian author, and to have something published. And it is doable - 800 words is not THAT many afterall - although the truth is that going through boxes and boxes of material and sticking to less than 800 words is probably way more of a challenge than writing longer would be - whatever... I'm up for the challenge and looking forward to it.
