Historical Note

Begun as the Journal of Library History, also known as Journal of Library History, Philosophy, and Comparative Librarianship, at Florida State University in 1966, the journal moved to the University of Texas at Austin, where Dr. Donald G. Davis of the School of Information took over editorship, in 1976. Twelve years later, the journal’s name changed to Libraries and Culture: A Journal of Library History. After Davis’s retirement in 2005, Dr. David B. Gracy, II, a member of the editorial board since 1985, assumed the editor position, and renamed the journal Libraries & the Cultural Record. The peer-reviewed, quarterly journal publishes essays and book reviews concerning the cultural and social history of the creation, organization, and use of library, archival, and museum collections.
