Training

Whether you are in the process of proposing, designing, or executing a digital project for research and/or instruction, Washington University offers a number of training opportunities that relate to your project.


Training on Planning and Metadata

Washington University Libraries XML training
The Washington University Libraries present free workshops on several aspects of XML about twice a year, in the fall and spring semesters. These sessions are open to anyone in the area. The workshop is typically made up of four sessions on different XML standards and technologies. There are no prerequisites, however, those without experience in markup languages (such as HTML) who wish to take other sessions may find the introductory session helpful. All sessions will be presented at an introductory level.
