CALL FOR PAPERS
Africa’s natural environment is rich and diverse, ranging from its wildlife and plants to its land and resources. It is also one of the continents most severely affected by climate change, with increasingly erratic weather events adversely impacting biodiversity, agriculture and those living there. This conference will explore library and archive materials relating to Africa and the environment and how they are collected, catalogued, preserved and used in research and teaching. We would welcome papers relating to a range of media including documents and manuscripts, photographs, newspapers, historical printed collections, audio-visual material and born-digital material.
Subjects might include:
Librarians, archivists and researchers are invited to submit abstracts of up to 350 words for consideration to Sarah Rhodes (email@example.com) by 31 March 2022.
