Subject: Summer Courses at the Rare Book School

Greetings from the Rare Book School,

Rare Book School (RBS) will again host courses on books and printing this summer in Charlottesville, Virginia. RBS provides continuing-education opportunities for students from all disciplines and levels to study the history of written, printed, and born digital materials with leading scholars and professionals in the field. We are still accepting applications to the following three courses, which may be of interest to your students:

L-60 Introduction to Archives for Special Collections Librarians, taking place 4-8 July 2011. Taught by Jackie Dooley (Program Officer for OCLC Research) & Bill Landis (Head of Special Collections Research and Instructional Services at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill). Explore archival approaches to appraisal, acquisitions, description, and access to personal papers and organizational records. Challenges associated with digitization and born-digital materials will be addressed. Aspects of professional culture, terminology, education and history will be compared to those of rare book librarianship. The course will include lectures, readings, discussion, practical exercises, and field trips to the Library of Virginia in Richmond and the Albert & Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia.. For more information: http://rarebookschool.org/courses/libraries/l60/

G-30. Printed Books since 1800: Description & Analysis, taking place 4-8 July 2011. Taught by Katherine Reagan (Ernest Stern 56 Curator of Rare Books & Manuscripts and Assistant Director for Collections, Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, Cornell University) & Tom Congalton(Owner and Founder of Between the Covers Rare Books). Learn how to recognize, evaluate and describe the physical aspects of printed materials from the post-1800 period. Participate in hands-on interaction with RBS's rich teaching collection of books, periodicals, and related materials produced during the machine-press period. For more information: http://www.rarebookschool.org/courses/general/g30/

H-50. The American Book in the Industrial Era, 1820-1940, taking place 18-22 July 2011. Taught by Michael Winship (Iris Howard Regents Professor of English II at the University of Texas at Austin). Learn more about the rise of industrial production processes in the United States. Students of this course will have the opportunity to study and handle books from RBS's rich teaching collection as they explore manufacturing methods, publishing practices, distribution networks, and reception and use of books, periodicals, and other printed materials in America.
