The Rare Books Group is delighted to announce that registration is now open for this year’s Annual Seminar, Curating Special Collections Exhibitions.
With many libraries now involved in producing physical and online exhibitions, this seminar aims to discuss the steps involved, opportunities for collaboration and education, and care of the collections themselves. It will feature speakers from a range of institutions engaged in exhibition-making including Anne Hodge, Curator of Prints and Drawings, National Gallery of Ireland; Susie Bioletti, Keeper of Preservation and Conservation, TCD; Lucy Collins, Assistant Professor, School of English, Drama & Film, and Evelyn Flanagan, Head of Special Collections, UCD.
This full-day programme is accredited for CPD by the Library Association of Ireland. For pricing and registration information, please see the draft programme.
We are also delighted to announce that the seminar will be followed by the launch of ‘Book Collecting in Ireland and Britain 1650-1850’, proceedings of our 2016 annual seminar, jointly published by the Trustees of the Edward Worth Library and the Rare Books Group.
