Welcome to LHRT News and Notes, the official blog of the Library History Round Table of the American Library Association. Our blog includes news about the Round Table’s conferences, calls for papers, award announcements, and other items of interest from the world of library history.
Recently, the blog also began featuring “notes”—short, informal essays about the people, themes, and collections in the history of libraries.
I encourage you to consider submitting a news item or an essay to LHRT News and Notes. The blog considers submissions from anyone, whether or not they are part of LHRT. Students at all levels, faculty, librarians, historians, and anyone with something to say about library history are all encouraged to submit. Join the conversation about the fascinating history of libraries! —Editor, Brett Spencer
