Eighth Summer Seminar Series at the University of New Brunswick

Announcing the Eighth Summer Seminar Series at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, August 13-20, 2004

For the past seven years, the Electronic Text Centre at the University of New Brunswick has offered a highly successful summer institute, “Creating Electronic Texts and Images- a Practical exploration of the Research, Preservation and Pedagogical uses of Electronic Text and Images”. This year the Centre is pleased to announce an expanded offering of two one-week workshops, “Essentials of Electronic Publishing” with David Gants, and “Intensive Introduction to Encoded Archival Description” with Daniel Pitti. There will also be a two-day workshop “Fundamentals of Digital Imaging” with Marc Bragdon.

The workshops are designed to effectively balance technical components with theoretical and practical “hands-on” learning opportunities in state-of-the-art facilities. Participants gain a greater understanding of the latest techniques, tools and standards while expanding their communities of practice.

Beginning May 7 Workshop Registration is available at: //www.lib.unb.ca/Texts/SGML_course/Aug2004/
