|Title:||Early Public Libraries and Colonial Citizenship in the British Southern Hemisphere||Authors:||Atkin, Lara; Comyn, Sarah; Fermanis, Porscha; Garvey, Nathan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10836||Date:||19-Aug-2019||Online since:||2019-07-02T07:40:21Z||Abstract:||This introduction outlines the primary arguments and methodologies of the book, including new imperial history models, networked conceptualisations of empire, and comparative and transnational history. It argues both for the existence of transnational institutional connections and reading audiences across the colonial southern hemisphere, and for the importance of local and regional variations in the reproduction of the British public library model. It concludes by outlining the book’s primary sources, as well as introducing its six case study libraries from colonial Australia, South Africa, and Southeast Asia.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Book||Publisher:||Springer||Series/Report no.:||New Directions in Book History (NDBH)||Copyright (published version):||2019 the Authors||Keywords:||Library studies; Book history; Public libraries; Catalogues; Southern hemisphere; Imperialism; Citizenship; Education||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-030-20426-6||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||ISBN:||978-3-030-20425-9|
