Dunedin Public Libraries are proud to dedicate the latest Reed Gallery exhibition to Emeritus Professor Colin Gibson.

For over twenty years Professor Gibson has generously donated works relating to the field of hymnology to the Libraries. The first of his donations, which arrived in 1985, numbered sixty items.

From those double-digit, humble beginnings the collection has grown to more than 2,200 volumes and continues to increase in size and scope through purchases and further donations.

We are posting six videos on to our YouTube channel that covers most of the speeches given at the opening event.

If you have yet to visit the Reed Gallery it’s well worth making the trip to the third floor.
