If you collect rare books in any category and want to expand your knowledge, your network, and your collection, this project is for you. The Collector Directory is a web tool I’m building to index, discover, and connect with rare book collectors, dealers, institutions, and associations by their area of collection interest.
Joining the directory will be free, and your personal contact information is always kept private. If anyone has something to offer in your area of interest, you’ll see it in your email first and always have the choice to engage or not. No one will ever see you unless you decide you want to connect.
To learn more about the project, you can see how it works here. If the concept sounds interesting and you’d like to get more information or provide input as it’s developed, you can sign up for occasional project updates below.
P.S. If you’d like to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to create something like this, you can follow along by reading the “Collector Directory” post tags or getting on the weekly newsletter list for my private personal comments.
