- From Georgianna Ziegler, "What were women reading? A dive into the Folger vault."

- A look at a very cool 1663 book on metametrica from the Princeton Graphic Arts collection blog.

- Coming up in May at the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, the inaugural Summer Institute in Book History & Digital Humanities, on the theme "Acting on the Book."

- The Washington Post reported this week that the Library of Congress also chose not to highlight a photo of the 2017 Women's March in an exhibit because of "anti-Trump messages" appearing in the photograph.

- Tulane University has acquired the Anne Rice archives, with support from Stuart Rose and the Stuart Rose Family Foundation.
