About this book

The International Dictionary of Library Histories provides basic information for each institution examined Dictionary includes introductory articles on the history of different types of libraries. The Dictionary profiles more than 200 international institutions, including the world's most important research libraries and other libraries with globally or regionally notable collections, innovative traditions, and significant and interesting histories. The essays take advantage of the growing scholarship of library history to provide insightful overviews of each institution, including both the traditional values of these libraries and their innovations (such as developments in automated systems and electronic delivery) as well. The profiles will emphasize the unique materials of research in these institutions, including archives, manuscripts, and personal and institutional papers. The introductory articles on types of libraries feature topics ranging from theological libraries to prison libraries, from the ancient to the digital. More than 200 leading scholars from around the world have contributed to this project.
