Reading to do: 18th–20th century with Professor Michael Twyman

Following the video posted last week, we have now uploaded a recording from another session of the Reading to do workshop hosted by CIDR in October 2015 (more information here). As part of the workshop, Professor Michael Twyman led a session showing the historical development of ‘reading to do’ in the 18th–20th centuries. This video is an abridged recording of the session, focusing on the key points of discussion and main examples shown. The talk made extensive use of collections based materials, including a range of tables, handbooks, guidebooks, and catalogues, demonstrating the rich evolution of printed informative text. An additional PDF to accompany the video can be downloaded here, providing higher quality images of some of the main documents shown in the talk.
