Library History
A Call for Papers

The Canadian Library Association Library History Interest Group is soliciting papers for a program at the CLA Annual Conference in Halifax, N.S., June 19 - 22, 2002. Particular attention will be paid to Canadian library history, with a special focus on Atlantic Canada.

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 history:
1. Overviews and syntheses.
2. Studies of particular individuals, institutions, or developments that provide
generalizable interpretations or serve as case studies.
3. Methodological studies that 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.
