Call for Papers: The Past, Present, and Future of Libraries
The APS Library, Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), is hosting an interdisciplinary conference that explores the history of libraries, the present opportunities for libraries, and the potential future for libraries as they continue to evolve in the 21st century. Submit proposals by May 15, 2018.
The APS Library offers short and long-term fellowships to support scholarship related to the Society's collections. Several new fellowship opportunities are available for research in Native American and Indigenous topics as well as in the digital humanities field. Deadlines for applications are in February and March 2018.
At the American Philosophical Society Museum, visitors will see exhibitions drawn from the Society’s renowned collections that trace American history and science from the Founding Fathers to the digital age.
The American Philosophical Society is the oldest learned society in the United States. Founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1743, it continues its mission of "promoting useful knowledge" through research, fellowships, and public outreach.
