A Call for Papers
The Library History Interest Group is soliciting papers for a programme
at the Annual Conference of the Canadian Library Association in
Vancouver, British Columbia, May 21-24, 2008. Particular consideration
will be given to Canadian Library History as it relates to the
conference theme - "Libraries & Publishing 3.0: Connecting Authors to
Readers in the Digital Age." Consideration will also be given to papers
on other themes.
Selected papers may be published by the Library History Interest Group
in conjunction with CLA.
Papers are solicited on any of the following categories of library
1. Overviews and syntheses.
2. Studies of particular individuals, institutions, or
developments, which provide
generalizable interpretations or else serve as case studies.
3. Methodological studies, which look at various aspects of
research in library history.
It is anticipated that papers will be based upon personal, funded,
institutional, or degree projects. Papers should not have been
previously published elsewhere. They should be fully documented, and
accompanied by illustrations where appropriate. They may be presented in
either English or French.
