RBMS

Tomorrow morning I’ll be on my way to Iowa City for my first RBMS conference! I look forward to seeing old friends, meeting new friends, and catching up on all things rare-book-and-manuscript related.

To all the attendees who may be reading, thank you, and see you soon! I hope you’ll attend the session on “Spooky Books” sponsored by yours truly. It promises to be an engaging discussion filled not only with stories but also with strategies, i.e., “…how we can potentially use the stories that are told about our libraries and books to engage our patrons, clients, and fans in meaningful ways, drawing those who hunger to be haunted into deeper research or more profound interactions with the items in our collections.” It’s a methodology that applies to bookselling as much as librarianship and I can’t wait to hear everyone’s opinions — and ghost stories!
