Biographies of Canadian Librarians and Archivists

There are many individuals who have made their mark in library and information science in Canada. The purpose of this biographical database is to present the most significant facts about the professional life of each of those listed and to identify a few useful sources of further information.
The brief, pertinent biographies about prominent Canadian persons may include personal facts; significant information on education, careers, publications, honours, awards, accomplishments, or association work; and comments by contemporaries. Inclusion of sources provides readers with further references on an individual.
ELA members can contribute to the project in a number of ways: by writing biographical entries, by suggesting improvements to the database, by correcting erroneous information, by adding biographical material already in the database. We welcome contributions to this project; for details on how to participate please contact the chair of the Ex Libris Biography Project Committee at the address below.
