rbm squareRBM: A Journal of Rare Books, Manuscripts, and Cultural Heritage (RBM), a peer-reviewed, open access journal published by ACRL, seeks submissions pertaining to special collections and cultural heritage topics for its spring 2017 issue.

RBM is ACRL’s journal covering issues pertaining to special collections libraries and cultural heritage institutions. Those writing for RBM may include special collections librarians, archivists, preservation officers and conservators, artists, museum professionals, collectors, dealers, filmmakers, performance artists, faculty, students, researchers, and anyone interested in and working to preserve cultural heritage.

RBM represents a wide range of cultural heritage collections, especially the theory and practice of working in and with those materials,” said Editor Jennifer K. Sheehan of The Grolier Club. “I hope that students, practitioners, and academics all feel free to submit their relevant manuscripts for consideration.”

Topics covered in recent issues include:

  • the printing press as living history,
  • online discoverability of collections,
  • successful social media campaigns,
  • preserving cultural heritage during wartime,
  • interlibrary loan of special collections materials, and
  • embracing the future as stewards of the past.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas, knowledge, and experiences. To be considered for the spring issue, submissions are due to RBM Editor Jennifer Sheehan at jsheehan@grolierclub.org by January 1, 2017. Submissions will also be considered on a rolling basis for future issues. Additional information is available on the journal website.
