ILAB Congress and Symposium, Oxford 2022

In addition to preparing for First London, I am also delighted to be participating in the forthcoming ILAB Symposium on Wednesday September 14th 2022, the latest in a series of collaborative events and programmes between libraries, collectors and booksellers examining issues affecting the world of antiquarian books today. Following the successful symposium held at the Grolier Club in New York in 2019, we are gathering in the beautiful city of books and learning, Oxford, and are very grateful to the Bodleian Library for providing the Weston Library Lecture Hall as our venue.

A diverse and very knowledgeable group of booksellers, collectors, government representatives, librarians and law enforcement officers have agreed to share their views on some of the complex and challenging issues faced by those working with antiquarian books and related rare materials today. I am honoured to be taking on the role of Moderator for the day, and also to be one of the speakers for the first session.
