            Libraries are filled with magic. From the Bodleian, the Folger and the Smithsonian to the fabled libraries of middle earth, Umberto Eco's mediaeval library labyrinth and libraries dreamed up by John Donne, Jorge Luis Borges and Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Stuart Kells explores the bookish... places, real and fictitious, that continue to capture our imaginations. The Library: A Catalogue of Wonders is a fascinating and engaging exploration of libraries as places of beauty and wonder. It's a celebration of books as objects and an account of the deeply personal nature of these hallowed spaces by one of Australia's leading bibliophiles.

            Public History for a Digital Age: The Art of Curation

            Public History for a Digital Age: The Art of Curation (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Public History in a Digital Age addresses the selection, presentation, maintenance, collection, and archiving of digital assets. The author discusses how digital curation establishes, maintains, and adds value to repositories of digital data for present and future use. The challe...nge of engaging publics in historical interpretation is one of the most enduring problems for historians across the spectrum of practice: in museums, the academy, National Parks, classrooms, and communities themselves. This book focuses on how the digital revolution has transformed how we produce, consume, represent, and imagine the historical endeavor. It also discusses how we theorize knowledge itself, including how we conceive of and interact with publics. The dynamic intersection of public history and digital humanities has transformed both public history and digital humanities. The author uses both the theory and practice of the Curator as a lens through which to understand this dynamic era. By exploring the shifting terrain of curation across multiple domains of practice, Public History in a Digital Age reveals how digital concepts, as well as, technologies, are reframing the theory and practice of public history.
