Library ephemera: interesting orgs and resources

Biblioburbia: the Library Files
Extremely fun project by artist/zinemaker/writer/gem/fellow library-tourist Vanessa Berry.

The Librarium
Curated bookshelves of small press publications in an artist run space.
Home of the Secret Librarian Sect I may be de-accessioned for mentioning.

Library as Incubator Project
A project designed to "promote and facilitate creative collaboration between libraries and artists of all types, and to advocate for libraries as incubators of the arts". Absolutely excellent.

A blog for, and about, materials collections in art, architecture and design environments.

Little Libraries and Tactical Urbanism
DIY libraries, libraries as art-projects. Library commons and pop ups.
Great essay by Shannon Mattern in Design Observer.

The personal, cultural and historical horror of libricide and library loss. Prepared for UNESCO on behalf of IFLA by Hans van der Hoeven and on behalf of ICA by Joan van Albada.
