While Rare Book School’s home for 27 years, Alderman Library at the University of Virginia, undergoes a complete renovation for the next few summers, we’re thrilled to be relocating our teaching spaces to the original library of Thomas Jefferson’s academical village: the Rotunda. In addition to our Charlottesville classes, we will be offering courses at our partner institutions in six other cities. Rare Book School provides continuing-education opportunities for students from all disciplines and skill levels to study the history of written, printed, and digital materials with leading scholars and professionals in the field.
