    Some names and terms are easily recognizable -- Gutenberg, signature, octavo; while others -- Manutius, intaglio, biopredation, may be somewhat more obscure.

      Some names and terms are easily recognizable -- Gutenberg, signature,
      octavo; while others -- Manutius, intaglio, biopredation, may be somewhat
      more obscure. Looking for a way to sort out the potentially overwhelming
      amount of information available on books and book collections? Friday, May
      21st, brings Education Day to the Virtual Celebration of the Book sponsored
      by ILAB at www.ilab.org. Guests will find a wealth of information related
      to the book collecting hobby, libraries, and ILAB.

      The four day event includes a virtual auction running until May 22 to
      benefit UNICEF, a non-profit organization helping children in need around
      the world; a virtual book fair running until 10:00 p.m. May 22nd; a "Biblio
      Quiz" where entrants can win prizes by testing their book knowledge, and
      live appraisals on Saturday, May 22nd. ILAB will also launch new features
      on its website, including educational resources for book collectors and
      highlighting its powerful new search engine which searches a database of
      over 3 million books, maps, prints and autographs from nearly 2000
      booksellers from all over the world.

      The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), an organization
      of national associations of antiquarian booksellers around the world,
      speaks for twenty nations and nearly two thousand leading booksellers bound
      by a code of ethics to promote the integrity and professionalism of the
      antiquarian book trade worldwide.
