Introduction to Using Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts Workshop
- Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 4-5 in the Rock Library's Hecker Room
This workshop by William S. Monroe (Senior Scholarly Resources Librarian) is aimed at graduate students (and others) who may have a need to look at European manuscript sources from the medieval and early modern periods, though others may find it informative. It will consist of a basic introduction to terminology, locating and identifying manuscript books and documents, how to prepare for visiting a library or archive, and what to do when there. It will also include a basic introduction to the idea of paleography and to paleographical tools.
