 Announcing the Seventh Summer Institute at the University of New
          Brunswick / Fredericton / New Brunswick / Canada

 *************************************************************

Creating Electronic Texts and Images -- a practical "hands-on"
exploration of the research, preservation and pedagogical uses of
electronic texts and images in the humanities.

DATES: August 24-29, 2003
INSTRUCTOR: David Seaman, Director, Digital Library Federation
(http://www.diglib.org/dlfhomepage.htm)
PLACE: University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada

Sponsored by the Electronic Text Centre at the University of New
Brunswick Libraries and the Department of Archives and Special
Collections

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The course will centre around the creation of a set of electronic texts
and digital images. Topics to be covered include:

.       XML tagging and conversion
.       Using the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines
.       Ebooks
.       The basics of archival imaging
.       The form and implications of XML
.       Publishing XML on the World Wide Web
.       EAD - Encoded Archival Descriptions

The course is designed primarily for librarians and archivists who are
planning to develop electronic text and imaging projects, for scholars
who are creating electronic texts as part of their teaching and research,
and for publishers who are looking to move publications to the Web.

Course participants will learn how to create TEI encoded XML files from
a selection of manuscripts from UNB's Archives and Special Collections;
and, then, how to turn these XML files automatically into multiple formats,
including HTML, PDF, and EBook.  Participants will also have the
opportunity to tag an EAD finding aid and explore issues in creating digital
images.
The work of the class will be made available on the Internet through the
Electronic Text Centre at the University of New Brunswick Libraries' Web
Page.

COURSE PREREQUISITES: This year's institute presupposes that
participants have some experience with the Web and an elementary
understanding of HTML.

FACILITIES:
The course will be held in the Instructional Technology Learning Centre
(ITLC) in the Harriet Irving Library on the UNB campus. This
state-of-the-art lab has a Windows PC for each participant and a
high end digital projection system. The facility is air conditioned.
