Rare Book School announces its 2013 course schedule. Join us this summer as
we celebrate 20 years at the University of Virginia, and 30 years in

In 2013, RBS will offer courses at the University of Virginia in
Charlottesville (June–August), the Lillian Goldman Law Library, Anne T. and
Robert M. Bass Library, and Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at
Yale University in New Haven (June), the Rare Book and Manuscript Library
at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia (July) and at the
Smithsonian Institution and Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC

This year RBS adds seven new courses, highlighted in bold below, to our
programming. Additionally, RBS is pleased to offer several courses of
interest to digital humanists, including “XML in Action: Creating TEI
Texts,” taught by David Seaman and “Digitizing the Historical Record,”
taught by Andrew Stauffer & Bethany Nowviskie. Other courses, such as
“Scholarly Editing: Principles & Practice,” taught by David Vander Meulen,
offer traditional bibliographic skills that are highly translatable to
digital environments.

The online application for Summer courses will be available on the RBS
website beginning in January 2013. Detailed course descriptions and advance
reading lists are available at
