The New "Philatelic Literature & Research" Blog

The  American Philatelic Research Library (APRL) now has a blog.

Maintained by APRL librarian Tara Murrary and co-bloggers, Larry Nix and David Straight, "Philatelic Literature Research"  hopes to keep philatelists up-to-date with the latest news in between issues of the Philatelic Literature Review, the library's quarterly journal.

Larry Nix, who has been doing the Library History Blog for several years, writes, "The blog format for communicating information is well established in the virtual world of the Internet, and I’m confident that it will be an effective way for the APRL to assist philatelists in the study of a broad range of philatelic topics."

The American Philatelic Research Library is the largest public philatelic library in the United States. Its holdings include many of philately's classic periodicals, and it receives more than 400 current periodicals from around the world. Catalogues, government documents, auction catalogues, and a variety of other materials are available.
