Rare Book School FRESHEST ADVICES November 2007

RBS 2008 COURSE SCHEDULE
The schedule for most of the courses to be offered in 2008 has been posted on our website: see <http://www.rarebookschool.org/schedule/>Current Schedule. Six new RBS courses will be offered in 2008:
BIBLIOGRAPHERS' TOOLKIT COURSES (G-20 and G-30)
Bibliographers' Toolkit<http://www.rarebookschool.org/courses/general/g20/>: Printed Books to 1800, taught by David Whitesell (American Antiquarian Society) will run 21-25 July; its mate, Bibliographers' Toolkit<http://www.rarebookschool.org/courses/general/g30/>: Printed Books since 1800, co-taught by Tom Congalton (Between the Covers) and Katherine Reagan (Cornell) will run 9-13 June. This pair of new courses is intended for those seeking a better understanding of how to recognize, evaluate and describe the physical aspects of printed materials.


<http://www.rarebookschool.org/courses/libraries/l90/>DESIGNING ARCHIVAL DESCRIPTION SYSTEMS (L-90)
This new course, taught by Daniel Pitti (UVa), will explore in detail markup and database technologies, efforts underway to integrate the two technologies, and the opportunity provided by this integration for transforming archival description.


<http://www.rarebookschool.org/courses/libraries/l60/>INTRODUCTION TO ARCHIVES FOR RARE BOOK LIBRARIANS (L-60)
Co-taught by Jackie Dooley (UC Irvine) and Bill Landis (Yale), this course is intended for those whose education and experience are principally rare book-oriented who now find themselves working with archival materials or managing the work of archivists.


<http://www.rarebookschool.org/courses/illustration/i90/>THE ART OF THE BOOK IN EDO AND MEIJI JAPAN, 1615-1912 (I-90)
The illustrated woodblock printed books produced in Japan in the Edo and Meiji periods represent a remarkable achievement in terms of their technical perfection, broad range of styles and subject matter, and their beauty; no comparable sustained tradition of artistically significant printed illustrated books existed in China or the West. Taught by Ellis Tinios (University of Leeds) as a complement to his existing RBS course: Japanese Illustrated Books, 1615-1858 (I-85).
We expect that a sixth new course will be offered at Princeton in October on the history of children's books, co-taught by Andrea Immel (Princeton) and Justin G. Schiller (Justin G. Schiller Ltd); further details shortly.
A seventh new course, <http://www.rarebookschool.org/courses/history/h65/>Introduction to the History, Collection, Description, and Use of Maps (H-65), taught by Alice Hudson (NYPL), will debut in RBS 2009.
