Object-based learning lies at the heart of teaching in both historical bibliography and cataloguing classes on the MA Library and Information Studies at UCL. Tom Phillips's work A humument and the novel he chose to use as his canvas, W.H. Mallock's A human document provide memorable ‘object lessons’ with scope for students to synthesize and evaluate their pre-existing learning from inside and outside the modules. It is important that the examples used in class are simple enough to illustrate the strengths of any conceptual model yet complex enough to highlight its limits. It is also ideal if examples can be beautiful as well as useful. A humument fulfills all these criteria and, for students with no background in art or art librarianship, also introduces the artists' book as a genre and artists themselves as an important and interesting user group within information services.
An oral version of this paper was presented on 5 December 2015 at the conference “Livres d'artistes: the artist's book in theory and practice” organized by Cardiff University Special Collections and Archives (SCOLAR) in association with the Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research and Cardiff School of Art and Design. http://livresdartistes.weebly.com
