Curating Special Collections Exhibitions


Registration is now open for the Rare Books Group Annual Seminar, Curating Special Collections Exhibitions. This all-day programme is accredited for CPD by the Library Association of Ireland. For further details and how to register please see the draft programme.

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.

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.
