All about the Book: Field Trips, Week of Jan. 12, 2009

With the holidays in our rearview, library-related events are back in force. Some highlights:
  • Jan. 15: Center for Book Arts hosts a free opening reception for its three winter exhibitions: Artists Books as (Sub)Culture; Jacqueline Rush Lee: INTROspective; and Zahra Partovi A Poet Speaks.
  • Jan. 16: Nylink presents a moderated discussion of OCLC's recent policy changes. You know, that brouhaha about who can use Worldcat records. No? Better brush up: the policy itself; code4lib's bibliography wiki of commentaries on the subject.
  • Jan. 16-17: Bibliography week kicks off a little early this year with Books at the 25th Street Armory, the antiquarian book fair featuring rare, collectable and first edition books, autographs, ephemera and rare paper.
