First issued in 1962/3, the Library and Information History Group newsletter appears three times a year. The winter issue is sent in hard-copy to our members and every issue is also available on the group’s website.

For the newsletter we welcome all content relating to the history of libraries and information, such feature articles, conference reports, calls for papers, exhibitions, events and lecture news and reviews, and updates about historical libraries. We’re particularly keen to hear from postgraduates and young professionals working on research projects in the field of information and library history.

Get in touch with the editor at if you would like to contribute a piece. Please also have a look at the guidelines for contributors for maximum word length and requirements for supplying images.
