Applications are now being accepted via myRBS for two Rare Book School courses being offered in New York City, 18–23 October 2015:
- The Printed Book in the West since 1800, taught by Eric Holzenberg at the Grolier Club.
- Special Collections Librarianship, taught by Michael Inman at the New York Public Library.
RBS is pleased to announce that the selection process for the IMLS-RBS Fellowships for Early-Career Librarians is now complete: a first cohort of twenty IMLS-RBS Fellows has been chosen.
