Robert Maxwell writes that after graduating from U of T he became the Classics Librarian (among many other hats) at Brigham Young University’s Harold B. Lee Library. There he just completed the 2011 Summer Institute of the American Society of Papyrologists.
“It was quite a treat to hold this six week institute here and get to meet a number of established papyrologists as well as students. It also gave the Library a good chance to assess and improve its papyrology holdings, which I personally enjoyed very much. The Library was very helpful with extra funding and moral support, and the seminar itself was held in the Library building. I was particularly interested in this collection development project because I used many of these same resources I was purchasing for the BYU Library when I was a student at U of T doing my dissertation, which focused on papyri and inscriptions. The U of T Libraries naturally had nearly everything I needed, and now BYU’s Library has a pretty creditable collection in this area as well.”
