This message is being sent to the Book_Arts-L, ExLibris, and SHARP
electronic bulletin boards.

Rare Book School is pleased to announce the schedule for its January 2001
session, which will be held at the University of Virginia in
Charlottesville from Monday-Friday, 8-12 January 2001. As usual, each of
these non-credit five-day courses will be restricted to 12 students. They
are open to all interested adults.

Course 11
The History of the Book, 2002000. An introductory course for those who have
had little or no previous formal exposure to the subject. The course will
be organized around major format and technological transitions and changes
in bookmaking: from roll to codex, from manuscript to printed book, from
hand to machinepowered printing, and from printed codex to electronic and
digital formats. The course will provide a framework for further reading
and thought on the history of books, printing, and readership, as well as a
context for later courses (at RBS or elsewhere) on specific aspects or
periods of book history. It will deal primarily -- but not only -- with the
Western book. Instructor: Daniel Traister.

Course 12
Book Illustration to 1890. The identification of illustration processes and
techniques, including (but not only) woodcut, etching, engraving, stipple,
aquatint, mezzotint, lithography, wood engraving, steel engraving, process
line and halftone relief, collotype, photogravure, and color printing. The
course will be taught almost entirely from the extensive Book Arts Press
files of examples of illustration processes. As part of the course,
students will make their own etchings, drypoints, and relief cuts in
supervised laboratory sessions. Instructor: Terry Belanger.

Course 13
Implementing Encoded Archival Description. Encoded Archival Description
(EAD) provides standardized machine-readable access to primary resource
materials. This course is aimed at archivists, librarians, and museum
personnel who would like an introduction to EAD that includes an extensive
supervised hands-on component. Students will learn SGML encoding techniques
in part using examples selected from among their own institution's finding
aids. Topics: the context out of which EAD emerged; introduction to the use
of SGML authoring tools and browsers; the conversion of existing finding
aids to EAD.  Instructor: Daniel Pitti.

Tuition will be $745/course. Additional information about these courses and
their instructors is available at the RBS Web site (address below). The
application form for the courses offered in the January 2001 session (as
well as for the March 12-16 and June 4-8 sessions) will be available on the
Web site later this week.
