Rare Book School

Each year during the summer holidays in the USA, the Rare Book School brings together librarians, conservators, scholars, dealers, collectors and book enthusiasts for intensive week long courses.

The school was founded in 1983 by the scholar Terry Belanger at Columbia University but it moved in 1992 to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

The school has a vast teaching collection of 80,000 items and despite the steep cost of the annual event, it is always well attended by around 300 eager book lovers.
