The best part is I will be sharing our books at a fair that’s part of the Conversations on Collecting Yellowstone Conference, in Cody, WY, outside the East Entrance to the park. The Vendor Fair is both for the conference attendees and open to the public, so please let others know, and try to join us! The exhibitors will be art dealers, artists, booksellers, book publishers, and more. Here’s your chance to look at all things Yellowstone! Beforehand and after the conference I will be driving from Bozeman through the park. Looking forward to the drive on the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway into Cody.

Here’s more about the conference, though registration is closed. With the upcoming sesquicentennial of the establishment of Yellowstone National Park in 2022 in mind, special collections librarians at Brigham Young University and the University of Wyoming have organized librarians, archivists, curators, collectors, vendors, and researchers who work with Yellowstone National Park materials to converse about areas of common interest, discuss concerns, look for opportunities and generally get to know their colleagues. As a result, the first conference on Collecting Yellowstone materials is underway!
The goal objectives of this conference is to bring together individuals/institutions with significant Yellowstone National Park materials to:
- Learn about the various YNP collections across the United States
- Become acquainted with their colleagues
- Discuss collections, discovery, acquisition and related topics
- Identify trends and issues that impact collections now and in the future
- Connect with scholars actively involved in YNP research
- Meet with collectors and vendors of Yellowstone’s vast history
Check back for a trip report and a conference report in July.
