La projet de numérisation de la collection de livres de poche (chapbooks) de l'Université McGill a débuté en 2011. Jusqu'à présent, plus de 900 chapbooks britanniques et américains publiés entre 1780 et 1878, conservés aux livres rares et collections spéciales de la bibliothèque de McGill, ont été numérisés.

Multigraphe 2013

French

Toujours à la recherche de nouvelles façons de penser les médias imprimés, le groupe de recherche Interactions avec l'imprimé lance un projet de livre innovateur et collaboratif. Avec comme thème principal le sous-titre de notre groupe, le « multigraphe » mettra en lumière les nombreuses pratiques culturelles d'intermédialité en Europe aux dix-huitième et dix-neuvième siècles.   

Le «BiblioGraph»

French

Le «BiblioGraph» de l’histoire du livre consiste en un nouveau genre de système bibliographique se situant à l’intersection des deux types d’approches de la recherche académique : l’approche critique et celle influencée par l’analyse de données. En tant que discipline, la plus grande force de l’histoire du livre en tant que discipline est sans aucun doute l’approche multidisciplinaire et multilingue qu’elle engendre dans l’étude de la circulation de textes. Cependant, cette force est aussi devenue la plus grande difficulté que les chercheurs de ce domaine doivent surmonter.

The Multigraph

English

The Interacting with Print Research Group is launching an innovative collaborative book project as part of its ongoing attempt to change how we think about print media. Taking as its theme the subtitle of our group, the "multigraph" will address the variety of cultural practices of intermediality prevalent in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 

BiblioGraph

English

The Book History BiblioGraph is a new kind of bibliographic system that lies at the intersection of critical and data-driven approaches to scholarly research tools. As a discipline, Book History’s greatest strength, its multi-disciplinary and multi-lingual approach to questions of textual circulation, has become, for its practitioners, its greatest liability.
