The G7/G8 research collection is a unique resource consisting of materials (print, tape and other media) emanating from the summits of the Group of 7 major industrialized, democratic countries and the Group of 8 (with Russia); ministerial meetings and individual summit countries; and descriptive and analytical material produced by the G8 Research Group at the University of Toronto and worldwide. It is housed in the new John W. Graham Library at the Munk Centre for International Studies at Trinity College, University of Toronto. Treated as a special collection, it is available for consultation in the G8 Research Room of the Library.
Actively collected by the Research Group since the 1988 Toronto Summit (and accumulating material from all earlier summits as well), the collection serves, in the absence of a secretariat of the G7/G8 itself, as a repository of the collective memory of that important global institution, accompanied by descriptive and analytical works of members of the Research Group and other scholars and practitioners.
For a detailed finding aid to the collection see the Collection Finding Aid.
The G7/G8 Research Collection is complemented by the G8 Information Centre, an authoritative, permanent web-based resource (www.g8.utoronto.ca). Both are available to serve the research and information needs of the academic community, the media, business, civil society and the public at large.
