[BKARTS] Earn graduate credit at A&M Book History Workshop

Participants in the 2nd annual Book History Workshop at Texas A&M
University now have the opportunity to earn graduate credit through the
School of Library and Information Science at the University of North
Texas.  Information on this opportunity is available at the workshop
website:  http://library.tamu.edu/cushing/bookhistory/2003.html
This five-day workshop provides an intensive, hands-on introduction to
the history of books and printing. It is intended for librarians,
archivists, students, teachers, collectors, private individuals and
others who work in areas related to or who have an interest in the
subject.  The course consists of a unique combination of labs and
seminars designed to provide students with practical experience as well
as a broad historical survey of the field, with an emphasis on the
printing and production processes of the hand press period. The workshop
also hosts an evening lecture series.  This year's speakers include
Maura Ives, Henry Petroski, Paul Needham, and Ron Tyler.  Again, more
information can be found at the Workshop website.
