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 operation!

 

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 (October–November).

 

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 http://rarebookschool.org/
