Abstract

The study of Canadian library history is discussed in relation to a variety of factors. A statistical analysis of publications reveals that 1965 was an important watershed year and that significant variations can be observed between the shape of English- and French-language writings, and between both of them and those of the United States and Great Britain. Similarities and dissimilarities are noted between the general historiographical traditions of English and French Canada and their impact upon Canadian library history. The attitude of Canadian graduate library education toward library history is also noted.
