Discontinued in 2008. Continued by Library & Information History (1758-3489). There is a growing interest at an academic level in all aspects of the 'history of the book' and related disciplines. This is a journal not only for librarians but also anyone interested in social, cultural and intellectual history. Throughout history, libraries have been the repositories of knowledge of all kinds. Without libraries, we would know nothing of former ages nor the thoughts of our ancestors. In the age of computers and the Internet, a new concept has arrived in the form of the 'virtual' library: technology may have developed, but the idea of a library as a source for knowledge still survives. Library History is a refereed journal, publishing articles of a high academic standard. It covers all subjects and all periods relating to the history of libraries world-wide, and frequently receives contributions from scholars world-wide. Issues include substantial articles as well as book reviews and occasional surveys of recent publications and guides to relevant sources.
