Computers and Collecting - Latest APS "On The Road" Course

Computers and Collecting with Barbara Boal, editor of the American Philatelist, will be presented Aug. 10-11 prior to the American Philatelic Society (APS) StampShow being held in Richmond, VA.

Gretchen Moody, APS Director of Education, writes to say, "You will enjoy two days of tips and fun as you learn how to incorporate the computer with collecting — explore and learn about software, scanning, designing exhibit pages, personalized album pages or newsletters, and enhancing scans and digital images. The instructor will be in touch with students prior to the course to learn of specific needs that the course can address. Students will receive handouts, hands-on instruction, and other digitally-based resources. Some basic knowledge of computer use is necessary to receive the most benefit from this course. We will be working on a PC, but most of the information easily translates to the Mac. A computer is not necessary, but to play along, bring your laptop!"

Cost is $180 for APS members, $280 for nonmembers until July 14. To receive the early registration discount. After July 14th, registration is $195/$295.
