Retrospective Bibliographies and European Print Cultures to 1830

Challenges and perspectives in the digital age

This conference will take place on 29 and 30 June 2023 at the Ossolineum Library, in Wrocław. In the course of 2022, CERL's Retrospective Bibliographies Working Group created an overview of existing or planned retrospective bibliographies. The first results are available here and we hope to expand the list with further European countries in the course of 2023. We are very grateful to colleagues that shared their information with us.

As a result of the work on this overview, CERL decided to organise a conference on the topic. The Working Group is very sensitive to the fact that boundaries have moved during varying periods in Europe’s history, and we want to explore with you the effect this has (had) on the creation of retrospective bibiographies.

We also hope to speak about current-day challenges such as creating electronic resources, making databases accessible and ensuring interoperability.

CERL collects bibliographic and catalogue records in the Heritage of the Printed Book database (https://hpb.cerl.org) and hosts a small number or retrospective bibliographies. We hope the participants will give us input on how CERL should treat this data and the role it can play to present this data to the community of researchers and librarians.

The programme for the conference is available below. We will not offer an online option or record the presentations as we hope to publish the conference proceedings.

We warmly invite you to attend this conference. To register, please write to secretariat@cerl.org, stating your name, affiliation and dietary requirements. The registration fee, which is a contribution towards the costs of catering, is 85 Euro. The registration deadline is 15 June 2023.
