This document is indebted to many members of the English faculty and Toronto bibliographers, including Professors Desmond Neill, Jill Levenson, Gillian Fenwick, and Jane Millgate, who prepared the earlier editions along with Lisa Sherlock, the Head of Reader Services at the E. J. Pratt Library.  Tanya Wood put the original into electronic format.  Marc Plamondon made the original available on our  first Department web-site.  The librarians at Robarts, including Sharon Brown and Jeff Newman, were extremely helpful in compiling this document, just as the librarians at Robarts reference desk have been very generous to generations of student bibliographers before them.
