Announcing the Third Summer Institute at the University of New
Brunswick /  Fredericton / New Brunswick / Canada
*************************************************************
 
Creating Electronic Texts and Images -- a practical "hands-on"
exploration of the research, preservation and pedagogical uses of
electronic texts and images in the humanities.
 
Dates:  August 15 - 20, 1999
Instructor:  David Seaman, University of Virginia
Place:  University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick,
Canada
 
Sponsored by the Electronic Text Centre at the University of New
Brunswick Libraries and the Department of Archives and Special
Collections
 
COURSE DESCRIPTION: The course will centre around the creation of a
set of electronic texts and digital images. Topics to be covered
include:
 
                    * SGML tagging and conversion
                    * Using the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines
                    * The basics of archival imaging
                    * The form and implications of XML
                    * Publishing SGML on the World Wide Web
                    * EAD - Encoded Archival Descriptions
 
The course is designed primarily for librarians and archivists who are
planning to develop electronic text and imaging projects, for scholars
who are creating electronic texts as part of their teaching and
research, and for publishers who are looking to move publications to
the Web. Course participants will create an electronic version of a
selection of Canadian literary letters from the University of New
Brunswick's Archives and Special Collections. They will also encode
the letters with TEI/SGML tagging, tag an EAD finding aid and explore
issues in creating digital images.
 
COURSE PREREQUISITES: This year's institute presupposes that
participants have some experience with the Web and an elementary
understanding of  HTML. For those with no HTML experience, a
half-day introduction to HTML may be held Saturday afternoon,
August 14, provided there is sufficient interest.
 
FACILITIES: The course will be held in the Instructional Technology
Learning Centre (ITLC) in the Harriet Irving Library on the UNB campus.
This state-of-the-art lab facility has a Windows 95 PC for each
participant and a high end digital projection system. The facility is air
conditioned.
 
REGISTRATION FEES / HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS:
 Registration WILL BE LIMITED
to 20. The tuition ($800 Canadian dollars) will include all course
fees for the Institute, nutritional breaks, and lunches.  Tuition does not
include cost of accommodations.
 
In addition, the week-long institute will include a number of special
social events. An all-day Sunday excursion to historic St. Andrews on the
Bay of Fundy will give participants an opportunity to meet and enjoy the
town's Loyalist history, early 19th century architecture, gardens, and
gift shops. Whale watching, kayaking and sightseeing tours to Ministers
Island are all within easy reach. The day ends with a relaxing meal at the
regal Algonquin Hotel overlooking Passamaquoddy Bay. An additional charge
will apply to some of the institute's special events.
