During the 1920s and early 1930s the McGill Library School undertook a number of bibliographic projects, often as part of the teaching programme. The most important of these was A Bibliography of Canadian Bibliographies (1930) compiled under the supervision of Marion V. Higgins. Jean B. Crombie's A List of Canadian Historical Novels is also a first attempt and is fairly rudimentary, but the list does indicate an awareness of the need for such bibliographies."Books Printed in Canada Before 1837 [in the McGill Univeristy Library]" was possibly intended to be another bibliography in the Library School series, but if this was the case, it never was published.
