“The 2012, no. 104, issue of the California State Library Foundation Bulletin contains several articles on the Sutro Library, including a reprinted one by Russ Davidson, “Adolph Sutro as a Book Collector,” which chronicles in great detail and with much fascination the evolution of that great library. It is required reading for anyone interested in American library history and American collectors.” (EXLIBRIS list)
"London’s Lambeth Palace, home to the Archbishop of Canterbury, also has a leading historic book collection. The palace’s library was the scene of a major crime that stayed undiscovered for decades. A sealed letter that arrived at one of Britain’s most historic libraries in February 2011 was to leave its staff stunned. The letter had been written before his death by a former employee of Lambeth Palace Library. Forwarded shortly after he died by the man’s solicitor, it revealed the whereabouts of many of the library’s precious books."
"Book historians, bibliographers, and early modern scholars working on word and image relationships are no doubt excited by new digital tools that allow one to search and match images. The Oxford University’s JISC-funded Integrated Broadside Ballad Archives project has developed such software, and the capabilities of the resulting tool demonstrate the promise of image-matching software."
