You should go to the Binding section of RBS; it lists all the binding
courses, gives descriptions, readings, and student evaluations over the
years. I can't locate a list of students, but I just quickly went through
it. I can crosspost your question on exlibris if you want, or you can ask
Terry if such a list is available.
