Peel Workshops, Fall term 2022
A series of introductory workshops

Take a moment to discover something new in the rare book library!

Students who have participated in Peel Workshops have found it deeply rewarding to work with primary materials, to learn about the history of books, to hold special rare books in their hands, and to discover what kinds of knowledge can be gleaned from the material objects themselves. For the fall term, we plan to offer a mix of small in-person and larger online workshops, as well as a couple of evening workshops (requested for the benefit of part-time students).

Registration opens at 8am on the first day of classes (September 1st), and is required. Find detailed workshop descriptions here. Please login using your UALBERTA ID to register here. If you join a waitlist you may be interested in knowing that there is usually some movement in the days right before the workshop.
