ACRL Western European Studies Section (WESS) and Slavic and East European
Studies Section (SEES) present:

Digitizing Medieval Manuscripts: East & West

A panel of distinguished speakers will discuss medieval digitization
projects from varying perspectives. We will hear about a text encoding
initiative of Slavic works, the ins and outs of the born-digital Roman de
la Rose Project, and the recent addition of digitized images to the
venerable Index of Christian Art. Speakers will address issues of
collaboration and scholarly use, among others. The program will be of broad

interest to Europeanists, historians and those exploring digitization.

Speakers: David Reynolds, Johns Hopkins University; Colum P. Hourihane,
Princeton University; David J. Birnbaum, University of Pittsburgh.

Monday, June 27, 2005, from 10:30 to 12:00 noon, INTER Camelot
