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

If you have not attended the Summer Educational Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management (SEI), consider adding it to your list of professional development goals. It’s an invaluable educational and professional development opportunity to learn from experts about image management topics such as intellectual property rights, metadata, digital imaging, and strategic planning.

SEI 2012 will be held June 19 – 22 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Now in its ninth year, SEI is a joint project of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and the Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF).  The goal, as stated on the Web  site, is “to provide visual resources professionals with a substantive educational and professional development opportunity focused on digital imaging, the information and experience needed to stay current in a rapidly changing field, and the opportunity to create a network of supportive colleagues. Past Institutes have been attended by visual resources professionals new to the field, those currently enrolled in library schools who wish to augment their experience with image management training, and more experienced professionals eager to update their skill sets in response to fast-changing technological advancements.”

If funding is a challenge, watch for announcements next year about scholarship opportunities for SEI 2013.

Do what you can to get there — you will not regret it!
