Libraries During Wartime

Posted by worldlylibrarian on June 2, 2009

Here are my powerpoint slides and list of references (pdf) for my presentation on Libraries During Wartime at the Canadian Library Association Conference (May 31st, 2009). The session went fairly well, if I say so myself, and there were around forty people in attendance.

Worldly Librarian at CLA conference

I will be attending the Canadian Library Association conference in Montreal this weekend, where I will be giving a presentation on Libraries and War. The presentation will take place Sunday, May 31st, at 10:30 (room TBA). Hope to see some of you there! I will post my presentation and bibliography on this site afterwards.

Also, I am looking forward to hearing a presentation titled “Libraries Across Cultures: Post-Tsunami Library Projects in Sri Lanka and Indonesia”, taking place on Saturday at 2:30. I hope to blog about it afterwards.

Talk on Extremism and the Destruction of Libraries

Posted by worldlylibrarian on February 25, 2009

If you’re in the UK, and a member of CILIP, you may want to go hear Rebecca Knuth from the University of Hawaii talk about extremist groups and their targeting of libraries. She is the author of several books on this topic, including Burning Books and Leveling Libraries: Extremist Violence and Cultural Destruction, which I have read as part of my own research. Very interesting stuff.

This ILIG Informal will take place on Wednesday 8th April 2009, at 1800 – 1945 in Charter Suite East, CILIP, 7 Ridgmount Street, London WC1E 7AE.  RSVP to a.m.tyler@btinterne By April 7.
