University of Toronto Libraries
As one of the leading research library systems in the world, and the largest in Canada, the University of Toronto Libraries (UTL) provide access to knowledge, preserve and develop specialized collections and provide facilities that stimulate learning and discovery. UTL connects the great minds of our students and faculty with great minds from other times and places. We are extremely fortunate to have inherited outstanding libraries, and with the support of our community, we look forward to providing the collected wisdom housed here to future generations of students and researchers.
At the University of Toronto Libraries, students are on the leading edge of life-changing innovations, exciting partnerships and opportunities, research breakthroughs and journeys of self-discovery. Your support makes it all possible.
It’s an honour to work on cataloguing the Joseph Brabant Lewis Carroll Collection at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. By providing a detailed record of every item—including books, ephemera and realia—I can help researchers today, and in the future, gain quicker access to this marvelous collection.
This work is also a profoundly democratizing process—taking these rare, precious items and ordering them so that anyone can appreciate them and learn from them.
I’m extremely grateful to the University of Toronto Libraries’ donors, for both enabling the Fisher Library to acquire this special collection and supporting my project. Working here means I’m being trained by very distinguished specialists who work at one of North America’s greatest libraries.
On behalf of fellow students and staff touched by your generosity, thank you for giving us the building blocks to build a better tomorrow for everyone the University of Toronto Libraries serve.
