Symposium - Toronto Convention. About Photographic Collections: Definitions, Descriptions, Access

We would like to inform you of the Ryerson Image Centre's 2012
symposium, *Toronto
Convention. About Photographic Collections: Definitions, Descriptions,
Access*. This event is being held from January 19-21, 2012. *

Organized by Dr. Thierry Gervais, the symposium will bring together
international speakers to Toronto for lectures and panel discussions.
During these three days, we aim to highlight the multifaceted nature of the
photographic object and the necessity to define terms of vocabulary and
vocabulary-related standards in use to describe and to make photographs
accessible. This symposium is one of several events leading up to the
launch of the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC), which will open it's doors to the
public in September 2012. This symposium has been made possible through the
generous support of Les Amis de la Bibliothèque Clémentine, The Howard and
Carole Tanenbaum Family Charitable Foundation and the Consulat Général de
France à Toronto.

Due to limited seating, if you wish to attend the conference, please

All the best,
