War of 1812 Bicentennial

To coincide with the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, submissions are being sought for the July-December 2011 and the January-June 2012 issues of Library and Archival Security, on the curation of materials related to the war, on the destruction of collections and facilities during the war, and on subsequent disaster recovery efforts. Descriptions of local collections that may not appear in large databases, and local history digitization projects that have a bearing on the early 19th Century are of special interest.

Possible topics include: damage and recovery at the Library of Congress associated with the Burning of Washington in 1814, or of records in Upper Canada damaged during the Battle of York in 1813; accounts of the preservation & digitization of unique local history materials relating to 1812-15, etc.

Manuscripts should be submitted by 11 May 2011.

About the Journal

Defining as a "security issue" anything that actually or potentially impedes the delivery of regular services to a library╩╝s intended audiences, Library and Archival Security would welcome research papers and case studies on these topics and other topics, for issues to be published in 2011 and 2012. Now in its 25th volume year, Library and Archival Security is a peer-reviewed publication of Taylor and Francis, appearing under the Routledge imprint. For further information and submission guidelines, please visit the journal╩╝s Web site, or contact the editor.
