Canadian Studies librarian receives Quebec government grant

In November 2011, Canadian Studies librarian Betsy Beattie applied for a grant from the support program for the acquisition of materials on Quebec, a subsection of the Quebec/United States University Grant Program provided by the Quebec government.

In January 2012, the Canadian-American Center received word that Fogler Library was awarded a grant to acquire books by Quebec authors.  Because the University of Maine offers seven courses on Quebec literature, it is critical for the library to have a substantial and expansive collection of notable authors from Quebec.

On behalf of the Canadian-American Center and the Canadian Studies program, we would like to congratulate Betsy Beattie on receiving this Quebec Grant.
