Established in 1966 as The Journal of Library History, the journal was edited and published at Florida State University School of Library Science until it moved to the University of Texas at Austin in 1976. It was briefly known as Journal of Library History, Philosophy, and Comparative Librarianship before returning to Journal of Library History. In 1988, the title was changed to Libraries & Culture, and changed again to Libraries and the Cultural Record in 2006. In 2012, the journal assumed its present title, Information & Culture: A Journal of History.

The journal is published three times a year by the University of Texas Press and is edited by Ciaran B. Trace (University of Texas at Austin School of Information) and Andrew Dillon (University of Texas at Austin School of Information).
