#ColorOurCollections 2023 Edition

It is that time of year again! Brighten up your February with a touch of colour. During the week of February 6-10, 2023, libraries, special collections, archives, and other cultural institutions will share colouring content based on collection items on social media with the hashtag #ColorOurCollections. 

We have two options for you this year:

  • First, an architecture-themed selection of images from a work-in-progress to share for the campaign, giving you all a sneak peek into the upcoming colouring book: Rare Colour; McGill & Montreal, An Architectural Colouring Book. The book will be published soon and available for sale at Rare Books and Special Collections and Le James Bookstore.
  • Second, A selection of items from the Osler Library of the History of Medicine, chosen by some of our student staff from the East Asian Languages material that has recently been digitized.

Share your finished work to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and tagging us (#McGillRarebooks or #OslerLibrary or #McGillROAAr) as well as #ColorOurCollections. @McGill_ROAAr on Twitter, @mcgill_rare on Instagram
