Summer Educational Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management (SEI) 2014

The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and the Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) are pleased to announce the website launch for the 2013 Summer Educational Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management (SEI), http://sei2014.org/.

SEI is suited to information professionals new to the field, those currently enrolled in library schools who wish to augment their skills with image management training, and 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.

SEI 2014 will be held at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign from June 10-13, 2014. This intensive workshop features a curriculum that specifically addresses the requirements of today's professional in hands-on and lecture modules. Expert instructors will cover intellectual property rights, digital imaging, metadata, digital preservation, and essential image management tools. Attendees also enjoy an opportunity to brainstorm on a range of issues, from new media and marketing visual resources to professional development and future career roles, during an interactive "ThinkCamp"
session.

Registration opens for SEI 2014 on January 21, 2014. Once again this year five scholarships will be sponsored by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation (http://www.kressfoundation.org/). Kress Scholarship
