The Institut d’histoire du livre brings together two major rare book and printing collections and three teaching and research establishments closely involved in the history of printing and the book: the Lyon City Library and Printing Museum and the École nationale supérieure des sciences de l’information et des bibliothèques (Enssib). The workshop encourages research, not only in book history, but also in the various connected fields involved in the study of written and graphic communications such as the history of technology, economic history, art history, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and information science. For the 11th edition of its Book History Workshop, the Institut d’histoire du livre offers four advanced courses in the fields of book and printing history, taught by Rosamond McKitterick, James Mosley, Dominique Varry and François Vinourd.
