Reports on ephemera in libraries: CILIP, Clinton, Makepeace and Pemberton

In January 2003, CILIP (Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, formerly the Library Association) held a meeting in London (chaired by Prof Michael Twyman) under the auspices of re:source (the Council for Museums, Archives and Libraries) to examine library and museum issues relating to ephemera (significance, acquisitions, collection management, cataloguing, digitisation, etc.). The report and its recommendations: Ephemera: the stuff of history are on CILIP's website.

Earlier works on library issues are, notably:
  • Pemberton, John E. The national provision of printed ephemera in the social sciences: a report prepared for the Social Science and Government Committee of the Social Science Research Council. Coventry, 1971
  • Clinton, Alan.  Printed ephemera: collection, organisation, and access. London, 1981
  • Makepeace, Chris E. Ephemera: a book on its collection, conservation, and use. Aldershot and Brookfield, Vt., c. 1985
