The Inforum mounts thematic book displays and exhibitions from time to time.  

Many of the displays are accompanied by annotated bibliographies, available as PDFs below. For books listed as 'In-cataloguing',  iSchool students, faculty, and staff may request rush cataloguing for desired items.


Our team of Inforum Information Desk student assistants are instrumental in the creation of displays and bibliographies.   If you have ideas for future themes, we'd love to hear about them.   Email nalini [dot] singhatutoronto [dot] ca with your ideas.
