Significant Donations to the Bronfman Business Library

Seymour Schulich’s Canadian History Donation

The Bronfman Business Library has benefited from two generous donations by Seymour Schulich OC (Hon LLD’ 03). These materials expand and enrich the library’s existing collection in significant ways and include some one hundred items featured in Bronfman Business Library’s Rare Book collection. Remaining items have been added to the library’s circulating collection.  This collection’s scope and coverage is wide-ranging with most items relating to one or more aspects of the history of Canada. Use the link above for more information on the nature and content of this donation, including a comprehensive bibliographic list of items.
