SEI 2015: Registration Now Open

Registration is now open for SEI 2015! To sign-up, please visit the SEI website: http://seiworkshop.org/registration/

In its twelfth year as a joint program between the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and the Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF), SEI 2105 will be held at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign from June 9-12, 2015.

SEI (Summer Educational Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management) is an intensive workshop featuring a curriculum that specifically addresses the requirements of today’s professional, including hands-on and lecture modules. Expert instructors cover intellectual property rights, the digital lifecycle, metadata and cataloging, essential tools of image management, digital preservation, and uses of images in digital humanities. Attendees also enjoy an opportunity to discuss and brainstorm on a range of issues, from new media and marketing visual resources to future career roles, during the ThinkCamp interactive session planned for the final afternoon of SEI.

The SEI curriculum is especially suited to information professionals new to the field and those currently enrolled in library schools who wish to gain image management training, as well as more experienced professionals eager to respond to fast-changing technological advancements and job requirements. Individuals with a range of professional roles have benefited from past SEIs, including visual resources professionals, university and public librarians, archivists, and museum professionals responsible for image rights and reproductions. A recent graduate noted “SEI was enormously helpful; since I’ve never actually worked in visual resources the sessions brought me up to speed on so much.”

More information about SEI, including curriculum and instructors, can be found on the workshop website. Please feel free to contact the SEI co-chairs, Meghan Musolff (musolffm@umich.edu) or Greta Bahnemann (bahne002@umn.edu) with any questions. Reduced tuition is offered to VRA and ARLIS/NA members.
