The Bibliography (BIB) collection is the library’s largest collection and consists of books about book production and history, ranging from the 19th to the 21st century. The collection ranges from modern, contemporary and historical scholarship on the history of the book, libraries, book illustration and binding, calligraphy, papermaking, book collecting, bibliography, paleography, typography and printing to historical and modern technical manuals on letterpress and other kinds of printing, press mechanics and machinery, papermaking, binding and illustration techniques such as wood engraving, steel engraving, etching, aquatint, lithography and chromolithography.

The Bibliography collection is catalogued with a call number beginning with “BIB” and can be browsed by call number in the U of T Library Catalogue by entering “BIB” with the addition of a letter A-Z to narrow down your search (for example “BIB A” or “BIB P”) or by entering the relevant subject or subjects in the advanced search, and limiting your search to “Massey College (Robertson Davies)” under ‘Library’.
