Bibliography on Library of Parliament Renovations

The historic Library of Parliament, an architectural treasure here in Ottawa, underwent major renovations from 2002 to 2006. The Supreme Court of Canada building where I work is next door.

Last week, the website of the Parliament of Canada posted a bibliography of materials telling the story of the work that was accomplished.

Earlier Library Boy posts about the Library of Parliament renovations include:
  • Library of Parliament Renovations Finally Over (May 17, 2006): "The renovations started in 2002 and are part of the large-scale modernization project of the Parliamentary Precinct, which includes one of the finest collections of neo-Gothic buildings in the world. The Library of Parliament is a veritable architectural gem and is a well-known icon of the Precinct."
  • Renovated Library of Parliament Officially Reopens (May 31, 2006): "Yesterday, the 4-year upgrade to preserve and enhance the Library of Parliament building was officially completed. The project cost $136 million. A ceremony with the Honourable Noël A. Kinsella, Speaker of the Senate, the Honourable Peter Milliken, Speaker of the House of Commons and the Honourable Michael M Fortier, Minister of Public Works and Government Services, was held to mark the end of the rehabilitation work."

We visited the Library of Parliament last month. Beautiful.

Do you have any idea why they do not allow photography inside the library? (none. not even without a flash)

I think it may have something to do with copyright, but I can check and post an answer later.
