Library Artifacts and Memorabilia
The collector of library artifacts and memorabilia can choose to be a generalist and collect a wide variety of artifacts and memorabilia related to libraries and librarians or he or she may choose to specialize in certain areas such as library postcards or library souvenir china or any number of the collecting categories listed below. The collector may also choose to collect items relating to a particular library such as the Library of Congress, a particular person such as Melvil Dewey, or a particular library organization such as the American Library Association. The Norman D. Stevens Collection of Library Architecture located at the Canadian Centre for Architecture is arguably the world's largest collection of librariana. Dan Lester is a collector who collects a wide variety of items. These are listed on his Librariana Web page. I collect a little of everything but I specialize in Postal Librariana.
