Library and Information History Group

The Library and Information History Group (LIHG) was formed in 1962. It is one of the Chartered Institute for Library and Information Professional's oldest special interest groups and is the only group in the UK specifically devoted to the history of libraries and librarianship.

The LIHG has close links with the scholarly journal Library & Information History. Institutional and individual subscriptions to the journal are available. To purchase an institutional subscription, please email or visit Taylor and Francis Online.
