Information Guide

Formerly known as the Travel & Housing Guide

The October 2011 RBS Information Guide is available for those attending our course in Washington, DC. The Guide can be downloaded as a pdf. We recommend also printing it out as a booklet for reference during the course.

The Summer 2011 RBS Information Guide contains all of the information you need concerning your time at Rare Book School. The Guide includes information about getting to Charlottesville, booking a dormitory or hotel room, and getting a feel for what the RBS week will look like. Please look here first for all questions you may have after you are admitted. Additional questions may be answered on our Frequently Asked Questions page. We look forward to seeing you at 5 pm on the Sunday prior to your course for registration and the opening reception!
