Reminder – 2005 ETC Summer Seminar Series (August 2-13)

A reminder that the registration deadline for the Summer Seminar Series offered by the Electronic Text Centre (ETC) at the University of New Brunswick (Fredericton) is fast approaching and there are spaces available.

The Summer Seminar Series, which runs from August 2-13, consists of five workshops exploring issues in scholarly communication.

The series is designed to offer introductory and advanced level courses that effectively balance technical components with theoretical and practical “hands-on” learning opportunities in state-of-the-art, information technology labs.

Participants will gain a greater understanding of the latest techniques, tools and standards while expanding their communities of practice.

  1. Introduction to Text Encoding; Lisa Charlong, ETC at UNB

  3. Building Metadata Application Profiles; Diane Hillmann, National Science Digital Library
