Hi Allene,

this is the first time we're offering this XML workshop, so it very much is
a test-run for us. Depending on the response, we'll consider making a
workshop like this more widely available. If anybody else feels they'd
attend such a workshop if it were offered closer to home, please feel free
to drop me a line stating your interest!

Cheers,

GŁnter

MCN-RLG cosponsored workshop
***Getting Started with XML, November 8, 2003***
University of Nevada, Las Vegas
in conjunction with MCN 2003 Las Vegas, Nov 5-8

*Registration deadline extended until October 15th*

Designed for information professionals in the cultural heritage community,
this workshop employs numerous examples, demonstrations, and structured,
hands-on exercises in a computer lab setting to acquaint participants with
XML (eXtensible Markup Language). Topics in this day-long event include
adding value to electronic texts, creating archival finding aids, and
implementing standards-compliant Web pages. The $150 fee covers the full
day, including a 75-page workbook.

By the close of the workshop you will have acquired a thorough introduction
to XML and be able to
- articulate why XML is important for museums and libraries,
- list the six rules governing the syntax of XML documents,
- create your very own XML markup language,
- write XML documents using a plain text editor and validate them using a
Web browser,
- apply page layout and typographical techniques to XML documents using
cascading style sheets,
- create simple XML documents using a number of XML standards.

What you learn in this workshop will enable you to evaluate uses of XML for
making your institution's data and information more accessible to people as
well as computers.

Please register before October 15th at
https://corpweb.igs.net/~clarkeservices/mcn/mcn2003/register.htm to secure
a seat - space in the lab is limited, and seats are going fast! For more
information on the workshop and the MCN annual conference in general,
