TiNT Editorial Training Day
Monday 4 October 2021
University of Glasgow

Register here

The event walks through the TiNT project, offers training on its digital editorial tools, and offers a chance to contribute to the project, both on the day and in the future.

There is no obligation to continue to edit for the project, but it is a good opportunity to introduce research students to manuscript literacy and to find new avenues for collaboration.

Lunch and coffee are included.

Registrants will be emailed directly with a schedule closer to the day, but the event starts at 10:00 and we will head to the pub around 16:30.

Participants should create an account on the New Testament Virtual Manuscript Room in advance, if they do not already have one, so that they can be added to the private project workspace.
