BIBLIOGRAPHY WEEK happens each year at the end of January when several national organizations devoted to book scholarship and the book arts – the Bibliographical Society of America (BSA), the American Printing History Association (APHA), and the Grolier Club – host their annual meetings. Many museums and bookish institutions have exhibitions open during this time as well.
Future dates for Bibliography Week are:
January 22–27, 2024
January 20–25, 2025
January 19-24, 2026
January 24-30, 2027
The Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA) typically hosts a booksellers showcase during the week; the New York Academy of Medicine Library and Columbia University also host lectures. Coinciding events throughout the week bring many librarians, scholars, book-sellers, collectors, and others to New York to attend events held all over the City. Those traveling to New York can find a local arrangements guide and a list of ongoing exhibitions on the BSA website.
The BSA offers a blend of virtual, hybrid, and in-person events that are free and open to the public with registration. The BSA traditionally holds its annual meeting on the Friday of Bibliography Week. Most, but not all other events are free and open to the public, and some are accessible online.
