International Book History Society (Internationale Buchwissenschaftliche Gesellschaft, www.buchwiss.de)
The focus of their programme and event activities are in contemporary issues relating to the book and book market since 1945. The IBG offers scholars, authors, publishers, IT and printing specialists and librarians a platform to consider the medium of the book in an interdisciplinary perspective. The book should be understood in the context of media culture in its entirety in order to grasp more precisely its forms and functions with regard to other media.
