Another Book Added to The Collection of McGill Authors!

On the behalf of the McGill community, we would like to give a huge congratulations to our very own Svetlana Kochkina on one of her recent successes. Head of Lending and Access Services at the Humanities and Social Sciences Library, Svetlana recently published a book based on her dissertation from her PhD here at McGill!

The book, titled “Frances Burney’s “Evelina” : The Book, its History, and its Paratext,” traces the publication history of Burney’s novel from 1778. The book is available for purchase online, as well as through the library as an ebook and print book.

Congratulations once again to Svetlana, a fantastic representation of the talented authors we have within the McGill community!

Recommended Summer Reads from BookTok

Having become a popular social media platform in recent years, TikTok offers all types of content for users worldwide. On this app, BookTok has allowed people around the world to share their favourite books and give recommendations to others. The BookTok community has become more significant than just the platform itself, with bookstores and libraries now having displays containing the recommendations stemming from the platform.

Through the McGill Library, the community has access to a wide variety of books. More specifically, the Library OverDrive for web browser and the Libby app contain a wide selection of e-books and audiobooks available to borrow, including books recommended through BookTok!
