Next Stop, Chicago

The Chicago conference is only a few months away, but there’s still so much to say about our first conference that took place in Liverpool back in January. We had PhD students, historians, and librarians from Brazil and Mexico to the US and the UK who presented their new ideas and shared in the process of developing a vibrant community of library history scholars. Paper topics ranged from transatlantic book trading networks and the community of readers sustained by these commercial webs to investigations of seditious books and libraries during the Age of Revolutions. For a summary of the Liverpool conference, see Aaron Brunnmeier’s review for the Junto. For a digital walk down memory lane, check out our Storify narrative, which threads together all the great live tweeting done at the conference. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the Chicago colloquium, “Digital Approaches to Library History.”
