Challenges Faced Building Collections ...

Keith Schrum, our Special Guest Speaker, curator for History Colorado Museum, will speak on the subject 'Challenges Faced Building Collections to Serve Future Generations of Coloradans'. Mr. Schrum will present his insights on these issues facing the History Colorado Museum. 1. The state's demography is changing rapidly and is growing more diverse in terms of race, ethnicity and language. The traditional stories that served past audiences, or even those we encounter today may, not be of value tomorrow. 2. Original media is changing; there is a marked increase in the production of digital-born media as primary source information. 3. Technological innovation. Those of us with experience in a traditional paper-based world that has served well established audience groups must face and embrace these changes to remain visible and relevant.

The Used and Antiquarian Book World. Past, Present and Future: An Australian Dealer's Point of View.
Photo of Sally Burdon
In 1982 Sally Burdon joined her mother in the antiquarian and used book business in Australia's capital city, Canberra. Over the years the trade has changed enormously and how Sally's business, which today is known as Asia Bookroom has adapted and changed, gives an interesting case study of the broader changes within the book trade.
Sally is deeply committed to the trade and has been active for many years in the Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (ANZAAB) and in April this year she was elected to the committee of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB). With these perspectives she will also offer some views on the trade in general. The journey through the Past and Present and into the Future (!) is more than a catch phrase. Please join us for an informative and engaging presentation.
Sally is a member of the faculty of Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar this year and we thank CABS for enabling Sally to speak at the 30th Rocky Mountain Book and Paper Fair. The seminar is held in Colorado Springs the week following the fair. Now in its 36th year, the Antiquarian Book Seminar provides an opportunity for leading specialists to share their expertise and experience with booksellers, librarians, and collectors in a comprehensive survey of the rare book market, both antiquarian and modern.
Other Special Events:
Demonstrations: Letter Press Printing, Calligraphy, Book Binding and much more.
Preservation Station Returns: Basic book care and handling, simple repairs and the opportunity to ask questions about collection care.
Displays by Telecommunications History Group, the Bookworkers Guild, Book Arts League, Letter Press Depot and more to be announced.
