EX LIBRIS – Libraries and their historic interiors and collections

The Eleventh Annual Cambridge Conference of the Historic Interiors Section of ICON will focus on the historic interiors and varied collections within public, collegiate, country house and religious or monastic libraries.  The subject offers the opportunity to explore the history of libraries, their creators, changing function and sad loss; the medieval library interior, the conservation of globes and manuscripts. It will be a fascinating day for conservators, curators, librarians and anyone interested in the development and care of libraries, their interiors and collections.
