Legacy of Empire

CatalogueCatalogueBruce Peel does it again, with its current show of maps and books of Central Europe and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Armed with the comprehensive catalogue and having seen the supplementary map display, my thoughts are running in so many directions I'll have to deal with this one in pieces:

Bruce Peel's current exhibit: Sept. - Dec. 2008 and a tangent.
Cameron Library's map display: ended Sept. 21, 2008
How did all this stuff end up in Edmonton? The catalogue.
Library Collections and $: boom and bust at the U, 1960 - 2008.
