in anticipation of the CCS workshop on questions of academic publishing mid Feb
Which is just after this important meet at INIVA on National Libraries Day
The Stuart Hall Library celebrates National Libraries Day with a talk and display
A talk introducing Iniva’s special Library collection. A display will include exhibition catalogues, journals, monographs, zines and artists’ books, archival documents and ephemera.

I used to buy copies of this hugely desirable magazine from Manic Ex Poseur shop in Collingwood (Melbourne). I’ve no idea where they got to, which is strange cos I basically horde everything. They must be in a box in the attic somewhere, and if I could brave the dust I’d go get them now. They were beautiful beastly things.
