I'm so excited! I've been accepted to the Minnesota Manuscript Research Laboratory. This workshop provides guidance and training on the study of ancient manuscripts.

As a Library Science student my goal is to become a rare books librarian. It's critical that I gain some experience working with historical documents. Getting that experience is problematic in the Midwest, where medieval libraries are few and far between. The workshop is just the thing to round out my education.

Here's the catch- I have only two weeks to get funding for this program. I need to get the money to UMN by April 28. As an impoverished grad student, I can't afford the workshop cost of $400. Additionally, I'd like to have at least another $100 so I can cover incidental expenses like lunch.

The Minnesota Manuscript Research Laboratory will be held this summer at the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota, in partnership with the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library at St. John's University. The teaching faculty for this year's MMRL will be Marguerite Ragnow, Diane Anderson, and Matthew Heintzelman. For more information, see http://cmedst.umn.edu/groups/mmrl.html

I hope you will help me realize my dream. Any contribution would be deeply appreciated.
