Bibliographical Society of Australia & New Zealand and the 13th Australian Library History Forum

The Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand (BSANZ) marks its 50th anniversary in 2019. Since its foundation, the Society has primarily studied physical and textual bibliography, however, over the years it has established strong links with cognate disciplines such as history, literature, art history, biography, and critical theory. This year, we will foster this collaboration while exploring both past practices and future trends within the discipline of the history of the book.

BSANZ, in collaboration with the 13th Australian Library History Forum (LHF), is bringing together scholars and researchers to consider the book in relation to material culture (collecting, preserving, displaying), from the perspective of both its production (manufacturer, publisher, bookseller) and its reception (end user, collector, digital reader) in the digital age.
