The Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand (BSANZ) marks its 50th anniversary in 2019. Since its foundation, the Society has primarily studied physical and textual bibliography, however, over the years it has established strong links with cognate disciplines such as history, literature, art history, biography, and critical theory. This year, we would like to foster this collaboration while exploring both past practices and future trends within the discipline of the history of the book.
