The Imagining Toronto Library is an expanding and regularly updated electronic inventory of literary works engaging with Toronto. The first substantial catalogue of its kind, it lists novels, poetry, plays and other literary works engaging with the city’s places and people. It also includes scholarly and popular works focusing on local history and culture, literature and place, cultural geography, city planning and urban design. An informal thematic catalogue has also been created for readers interested in literary representations of Toronto neighbourhoods, cultural communities and social conditions.
