Prep for Session 3 @ the Reanimation Library

This post was made to the blog for The Page + The Screen: Siting Text in the Early 21st Century and Beyond

In preparation for the upcoming session at the Reanimation Library, it would be great if everyone who has signed up could arrive with a basic understanding of the library. If you haven't already done so, please take a look at the following pages:

http://www.reanimationlibrary.org/pages/about.htm
http://www.reanimationlibrary.org/pages/overview.htm
http://www.reanimationlibrary.org/pages/personal.htm
http://www.reanimationlibrary.org/pages/faq.htm

While I will give a brief introduction/orientation, I don't plan on talking at length about the library because I would prefer for people to have as much time as possible to develop their research projects.

I will, however, likely be referencing a few other sites/concepts in my discussion which you should probably take a look at:

The first session of The Page + The Screen will be taught by Caleb Waldorf of The Public School Los Angeles (and Triple Canopy).
