Registration is open for SEI 2014 (the Summer Educational Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management): http://sei2014.org/registration/. Places traditionally have filled up quickly for this intensive workshop that specifically addresses the requirements of today’s professional in hands-on and lecture modules.
SEI 2014 will be held at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign from June 10-13, 2014. The curriculum includes sessions on intellectual property rights, metadata, imaging, project management, and digital preservation. We are happy to announce that once again this year five scholarships will be sponsored by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and you’ll find instructions on applying for the scholarships on the SEI website. Kress Scholarship applications are due by February 7, 2014.
SEI is suited to information professionals new to the field, current or recent graduate students, and more experienced professionals eager to respond to fast-changing technological advancements and job requirements. Graduates of SEI 2013 felt it was well worth the investment, providing perspectives not typically covered in graduate library science curricula. They praised the expertise and preparedness of the instructors, and also appreciated opportunities for sharing problem-solving perspectives, especially in the “Think Camp” session on the final day. In the post-SEI survey one participant summed up the experience, saying “I have already implemented some of the things I learned. And I met like-minded individuals with whom I feel I can network.”
