The SCRIPTO Summer School Wolfenbüttel (SSSW) offers an introduction to XML, TEI-P5 and application software, and provides both knowledge and skills in order to describe medieval and early modern manuscripts in TEI and in or for the National Manuscript Portal. Moreover, participants will be informed about the management and publication of manuscript descriptions in databases and printed catalogues.
The one-week course addresses all graduates of medieval subjects and usually takes place annually. It is jointly organized by the Chair for Medieval and Renaissance Latin at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Prof. Dr. Michele C. Ferrari) within the SCRIPTO Graduate Program, and by the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel (Torsten Schaßan, Dept. Handschriften und Sondersammlungen). It is essential that participants bring their own notebooks with them, including special software. Before the course begins, a complete Java environment (e.g. http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/widget/jdk6.jsp) as well as the XML editor Oxygen (e.g. http://www.oxygenxml.com/download.html; complimentary 30 days test licence) should be installed on the notebooks. You will also find links to this software on the following page in the section „Materialien/Links“: http://www.hab.de/de/home/ueber-uns/kompetenzzentrum/handschriftenzentrum/scripto.html. Together with other documents of the Herzog August Bibliothek, participants will receive a voucher which provides personal access to the local WLAN in Wolfenbüttel.

Participants will be awarded a certificate from FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg detailing a workload equivalent to a maximum of 10 ECTS.
