AbstractKnowledge is constantly produced, confirmed, denied, and changed. Contents, ideas, concepts are considered knowledge as long as and where they find social acceptance. This session highlights the role of the library as a concept, as a metaphor, and as a physical place in these processes of knowledge production and change. Part I is dedicated to the foundation of academic libraries. The collection and organisation of learned books, the close interweaving between library and salvation, and the social formations that sustained the foundations: how did these constellations contribute to contemporary notions of what could be considered learned knowledge?
