Developed by a team of historians, literary scholars, librarians, and information specialists, a History of the Book in Canada/Histoire du livre et de l'imprimé au Canada defined Canada’s place within an international network of book history studies. HBiC/HLIC was funded in 2000 under the Major Collaborative Research Initiatives program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Seven editors coordinated research from six universities across Canada and collaborated with new and established scholars.

The six-year project published six volumes (three in English, three in French) in conjunction with the University of Toronto Press and Les Presses de l’Université de Montréal. Five databases supporting scholarship in book history were also be compiled and were transferred to Library and Archives Canada in 2009. They are available online.

Further information can be obtained by contacting any member of the Editorial Team.
