George Washington University's Center for Professional Development,
Appraisal Studies Program, Announces the following courses for May

CWAS 721: Technology of Furniture Making: Structure

    This course provides the attendees with a general knowledge of
    the materials and processes employed in making furniture in both
    pre- and mechanized eras. Particularly important is the review
    of tools and their uses, so that an observer can identify their
    "fingerprints" on an object, and thus provide clues as to the
    means by which the object was made, Through demonstration and
    "hands-on" exercises the attendees will be compiling a reference
    collection of tool marks and techniques to use for the remainder
    of their careers.

CWAS 470: History, Technology, and Preservation of Specialty Papers,
Archives Materials, and Ephemera

    Many collections found in libraries, archives, museums and
    private collections contain unique specialty papers. Specialty
    papers (such as dyed, coated or tracing papers) are used for
    many types of objects (including letters, maps, sketches,
    illustrations, architectural drawings, posters and greeting
    cards). This course is designed to familiarize professionals
    with the nature and diversity of specialty papers, training
    participants through lectures and laboratory demonstrations in
    techniques used to identify the composition and condition of
    these types of collections. The course will cover case studies
    about traditional and specialty papers researched and analyzed
    at the Smithsonian. Information used to appraise collections
    will also be discussed. The course is intended to inform
    prospective caretakers and appraisers on the nature of these
