History of Libraries From stone tablets to digital tablets, the history of libraries is a fascinating exploration of culture, politics, and society around the world. Whether exploring the great Library of Alexandria or rural libraries of the 1900s, there's something for everyone interested in understanding the impact libraries have had on life through history as well as the way society has shaped libraries. From hidden walls in the libraries of Ancient China to book burnings of the 20th century, the history of libraries is filled with intrigue and adventure along with censorship and destruction.

productivity: How to measure it Editing productivity can be widely variable, but measuring it is worth the effort. You’ll discover how fast you edit specific types of content and how much copy you’ve actually edited. These measurements can prove your worth to your boss (even if your boss is you) and can help you estimate fairly accurately how long a new project will take to edit. Last week, I looked at which measurements to use. This week, I discuss how to measure your editing rate. Book Series: The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe Originally founded by series editors Margaret King and Albert Rabil and the Press in 1993 as a modest proposal to make available in English translation perhaps a dozen key texts by women writers who contributed to the development of humanism during the European Renaissance (ca. 1300-1800), the Other Voice in Early Modern Europe series began publishing books in 1996. After the first half-dozen books were published, it soon became clear that the mission of the series had grown into the larger ambition of the textual recovery, not just of works by or about women that called for gender equality and equal education, but other important works, many quite popular in their day, from many different disciplines and genres, including religious history and devotional writing, economic equality and female autonomy essays, anatomy and medical treatises, philosophical and scientific works, and imaginative literature (including memoir, fiction, drama, and lyric and epic poetry).

Renaissance Liturgical Imprints: A Census (RELICS) We are interested in global questions about worship in Renaissance Europe. Our definition of liturgy, often a topic for spirited discussion, is rather loose; when in doubt about a particular book, we include it. We wish to portray here the European books of ritual for the several Catholic churches and also books for Protestant and Jewish faiths during the tumultuous generations before 1601. Our goal is to help colleagues find the books that can strengthen their research.
