The Library is happy to announce the second of its annual ‘Virtual Issues’. Each issue comprises a retrospective gathering of key articles in a particular field that have appeared in the pages of The Library since the journal’s first appearance. This virtual issue looks at Private Libraries and is guest edited by David Pearson. The articles presented are free to download until the end of March 2016.

David Pearson is the Director of Culture, Heritage and Libraries for the City of London Corporation. He is a past president of the Society (2010-12).
