Beginner’s Guide

Not sure where to start? We’ve collected 14 courses that cover some of the common questions, activities, and issues that may be involved in starting a new editing or recovery project. Each of these courses aims to provide a variety of examples that illustrate how other practitioners have chosen to approach their source materials. And many of these courses also provide exercises that pose guiding questions to get you started on developing and documenting your project policies.

We’ve gathered these 14 courses under the tag “Fundamentals” to make it easy to find this introductory material anywhere across the site. Of course, you may find that not all of these topics will be fundamental to your practice or project. You are welcome to take any number of these courses, in any order. We hope that this list helps you to identify and then take your next step(s).
