BIBLIOGRAPHY WEEK. "Bibliography Week" happens each year in New York City at the end of January when the principal national organizations devoted to book history have their annual meetings. Other groups plan interesting events, too, since so many bibliophiles are in town. Some events are open to members only, but mostly you are encouraged to show up everywhere: get a sense of what is going on in the book world, hear some interesting papers, schmooze over cocktails ... CLICK HERE for a preliminary schedule of 2018 events, and future dates for Bibliography Week.

THE TRANSACTIONS OF THE GROLIER CLUB AND GAZETTE OF THE GROLIER CLUB NOW DIGITIZED AND SEARCHABLE ONLINE. The Transactions of the Grolier Club (1885-1919), and its successor journal The Gazette of the Grolier Club (1921 to date), have documented the activities of America’s oldest and largest society of book lovers for over 130 years. Thanks to a generous grant from Pine Tree Foundation, a full run of The Transactions, and a run of The Gazette from its inception through 2009, have been digitized and made searchable online, free of charge, via New York Heritage, a research portal for students, educators, historians, genealogists, and others interested in learning about the people, places and institutions of New York State.
