About this Blog

The RBMS Blog Boot Camp Seminar Blog was set up in July 2008 to support a seminar at the 49th Annual RBMS Preconference in beautiful, sunny Los Angeles, CA. The blog is being used both as an instructive tool to demonstrate just how easy it is to get a blog up and running, and will also serve as a persistent resource for the seminar. (RBMS is an acronym for the Rare Book and Manuscript Section of the American Library Association, an organization that supports the work of librarians and archivists working with rare books, manuscripts, and other types of special collections.

Session participants include

Kathleen Burns, archivist at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale

Stephanie Horowitz, Assistant Archivist at the Charles Babbage Institute, University of Minnesota

Nancy Kuhl, Associate Curator of American Literature at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale

John Overholt, Assistant Curator, the Donald and Mary Hyde Collection of Dr. Samuel Johnson and Early Modern Books and Manuscripts, Harvard

    I was among the many unhappy RBMS conference attendees who were locked out of your Blogging Boot Camp session. Will you be posting any of the presentation materials online? It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi Danette!
    Yes, I’m hoping to post up the presentation by the end of this week (July 14) and start writing some posts about the topics that came up during the session. Hopefully this can be a good resource for those who weren’t able to fit into the room– it was a packed house and I regret some that wanted to attend weren’t able to. I’ll do my best to transition what went on during the session here.

    Thanks for your comment!
