Bibliographies, catalogues, etc.


Members of the PJRC participate in a number of ongoing projects that provide University of Toronto Libraries with a wealth of new publications, bibliographies, and exhibitions focused on Central and East European library resources. Exhibitions are created throughout the year to highlight topical collections and to mark anniversaries of historical events. Staff create bibliographies, catalogues, and reference compilations as companions or guides to library material. The Centre's annual newsletter, PJRC Update, features a wide range of articles on subjects within the sphere of Slavic research. The PJRC also contributes articles to several UTL newsletters, such as The Halcyon: The Newsletter of the Friends of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library and The University of Toronto Libraries Newsletter
