Library History Palooza
On September 10-12, 2010 America's library historians will gather in Madison, WI to share library history research and to have a great time. The occasion is Library History Seminar which occurs only once every four years and this year is the twelfth such event. Library History Seminar XII is being hosted by the Center for the History of Print Culture in Modern America at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. All the information for registering for the Seminar and the program is located at http://slisweb.lis.wisc.edu/~printcul/ . If you register before August 10 you get a financial break so don't delay. One of the highlights of the Seminar will be a public program presented by noted library historian Wayne Wiegand on the evening of Saturday, September 11. Also on Friday, September 10 there will be an auction of library history publications and ephemera. Anyone who has read this blog knows that I could not write it without the wonderful original research that has been carried out by current library historians and the library historians of the past. I'm looking forward with great anticipation to the event and to meeting some of the people I admire the most.
