    we shall also create an Encoded Archival Description guide. Topics include:
    SGML tagging and conversion; using the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines; the
    form and implications of XML; publishing on the World Wide Web; and the
    management and use of online texts. For details about last years version of
    this course, see <http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/rbs/99>. Some experience with

    machine-readable access to primary resource materials. This course is aimed at
    archivists, librarians, and museum personnel who would like an introduction to
    EAD that includes an extensive supervised hands-on component. Students will

    existing finding aids to EAD. Offered again July 31 - August 4. Instructor:
