California Rare Book School Summer and Fall Courses

2014 California Rare Book School Update

Susan M. Allen

Director, CalRBS

Greetings from California Rare Book School (CalRBS)! We are very happy to announce that the 2014 course schedule is now posted on the CalRBS Website ( and applications are being accepted. CalRBS will be offering nine courses during Weeks 1 and 2 (August 4-15, 2014) in Los Angeles, and three courses during Week 3 (November 3-7, 2014) in San Francisco and Berkeley. (See the yellow handout.)

There are no deadlines for course applications, as each course remains open until it is full (maximum 12 students). However, there are scholarships funded by multiple sources that have two application deadlines. The first is June 15 for Weeks 1 and 2, and the second is August 15 for Week 3. See the CalRBS Website ( for details and application forms.

Scholarships for mid-career librarians will be available once again in 2014. Apply by the scholarship application deadlines. These scholarships are made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. (See the blue handout.)

Byzantine Illuminated Manuscripts taught by Justine Andrews

History, Identification, & Preservation of Motion Picture/Video Materials taught by Snowden Becker

History of the Book in East Asia taught by Peter Zhou & Deborah Rudolph
