In 2012, LRBS will be running for two weeks: 25 June to 29 June and 2 to 6 July.
Each course on offer will consist of thirteen seminars, amounting in all to twenty hours of teaching time spread between Monday afternoon and Friday afternoon. It is therefore only possible to take one course per week. There will be timetabled 'library time' that will allow students to explore the rich resources of the University's Senate House Library, one of the UK's major research libraries.
There will also be an evening programme with an opening reception and talk, a book history lecture, and receptions hosted by major London antiquarian booksellers.
