  • These are advanced level rare books courses offered over 2 weeks during the summer in London.
  • Interested students must have taken either LIS 713: Rare Books and Special Collections or any History of the Book course.
  • Students must register for the additional credit, which involves completing a project beyond the course.
  • Credits earned at LRBS must be transferred to LIU directly or through the credit transfer form. Don’t forget that dual degree students are already transferring in the maximum number of credits through the dual degree program so they will not be eligible to transfer in credits from London Rare Book School.
