Bibliography Week


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 annual meetings in New York City. The Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA) hosts the 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.

The BSA and other organizations offer a blend of virtual, hybrid, and in-person events that are free and open to the public. Blending scholarly rigor with inter-professional collegiality and networking opportunities, Bibliography Week is an opportunity to grow as a scholar, a professional, and an enthusiast in the book world in New York City, one of the best places in the world to further your research. For more news and updates, please subscribe to the BSA and ABAA newsletters.

Future dates for Bibliography Week are:

  • January 20–25, 2025

  • January 19-24, 2026

  • January 24-30, 2027
