Donation of Michael Shafir Collection to Cluj County Library
A notable event in the history of the Michael Shafir Collection was its donation to the Octavian Goga Cluj County Library, which made this private collection available to a wider public. When Michael Shafir returned to Romania in 2005, he transferred his collection to the Faculty of European Studies of Babeş-Bolyai University, where he was teaching. When he retired, he also removed his collection, in the hope of finding a more appropriate storage space for it After Shafir talked in an interview about his efforts to find a hosting institution for his collection, the head of the Octavian Goga Cluj County Library persuaded him in 2012 to sign a deed of donation. He did not hand his collection over with an index and the collection remains unarchived to this day.
