The Forum has an interest in historic libraries of all kinds, but particularly those without a natural ‘home’ in the formal library world. All members of the Cathedral Archives, Libraries and Collections Association and of the Independent Libraries Association are already on our mailing list, as are hundreds of others, from colleges to learned societies to parish libraries and many more – and also people who are simply interested, whether as trustees or conservators or library historians. See ourĀ constitution.
