Unpacking the Library: Literatures and their Archives.
The history of Western culture is punctuated by affirmations of the presence,
rebirth, or return of literature. Such affirmation involves, necessarily, if
implicitly or symbolically, a turn toward the archival forms of the text – that
is, traditionally speaking, a turn toward the codex and the library. This
recourse to textual holdings in various senses clearly involves often
unacknowledged complexities of institutional, technical and cultural issues.

What is Information Literacy?
Information literacy is defined as the ability to know when there is a
need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and
effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand.
The 2006 Conference on Information Literacy
For the 8th Modernist Studies Conference in Tulsa (October 19-22,
2006) I am looking for papers for a session on the surprisingly
energetic involvement with clipping services by modernist writers.
What can clipping services tell us about modernism and individual
modernist writers? How did writers use clipping services? What does
the use of clipping services reveal about modernist relations to mass
culture? What kinds of knowledge do these archives reveal? What
potential for research is there?
Please send a maximum 500-word abstract by April 21 to Len Diepeveen
