In the wake of the 1960s a growing consciousness of the power of the media to unify and mobilize social causes fed into a movement of mass media democratization. Community radio and public-access television stations made forays into the mediascape, citizens' groups formed around areas of local concern, and in Québec, print media seemed to explode.
This exhibition is centred on the letters Peter Redpath sent to a friend in London while he was travelling up the Nile in Egypt in the winter of 1873. Redpath was not the only notable McGill benefactor and supporter whose interest in ancient Egypt led to their embarking on journeys up the Nile in the late 19th or early 20th century. On display are some of the books and photographs that were bequeathed or donated to the collections by several benefactors who made the journey.

The SIS Career Fair mainly targets McGill graduate students in Information Studies. Past fairs have attracted over 200 students, 20 employers and 3 professional library associations. While geared toward students in the MLIS program (150 +), attendance is open to PGSS members from other McGill departments. In past years, students from political science, communication and management have attended. Information about the fair is distributed campus wide to this end. This Career Fair fulfills the important need for networking and mentorship by providing an opportunity for students to meet professionals from the field of information science. The following organizations have confirmed their attendance: New Brunswick Public Libraries, Ottawa Public Libraries, University of Ottawa, ABQLA, Bibliothèques - Ville de Montréal, McGill Archives, McGill Libraries, Royal Victoria Hospital, Jewish General Hospital, Concordia University Libraries, Université de Montréal.
