Rare Books Room Tours Offered

If you would like to know what kind of treasures are kept in the glass enclosed Rare Books Room on the second floor of the Law Library, sign up for a half-an-hour (or longer) tour of the Law Rare Books. To sign up for a tour, please send a request to me, Svetlana Kochkina, svetlana.kochkina@mcgill.ca, and I will notify you when we will have a necessary number of participants.

“What do you guys do during the summer?”

This is the question that we are getting sometimes from our Law students who are coming to visit us even when they are on vacation 🙂 Paradoxically, summer is the busiest time for librarians. Yes, during the summer we do not teach as much, and we do not receive as many reference inquiries as we do during the school year, but we are working on special projects, and we are going to the conferences to learn and to present results of our work or research. This summer, I began working on a special project on Wainwright collection that we house in the Law Rare Books Room. I will report my progress and the results of this project on this blog.
