The Summer Educational Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management (SEI) is a joint project of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and the Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF). SEI seeks to provide information professionals with a substantive educational and professional development opportunity focused on digital image management, the information and experience needed to stay current in a rapidly changing field, and the opportunity to create and be part of a network of supportive colleagues.

SEI 2019 will present an overview of the digital life cycle, allowing attendees to “get their feet wet” in a broad range of topics, starting with designing and implementing a project to sharing the final product with others. This intensive three and a half-day workshop features a curriculum taught by expert instructors who cover:

  • Project Design
  • Intellectual Property
  • Digitization
  • Digital Preservation
  • Metadata
  • DAMs, Digital Curation, and Digital Repositories

SEI is open to new professionals, current library and information science students, and more experienced professionals interested in updating their skill sets. Participants may include:

  • Digital Project Managers
  • Visual Resources Professionals
  • Art and Architecture Librarians
  • Current Students
  • Recent Graduates

SEI is a fantastic learning and networking opportunity for students and professionals interested in creating and maintaining sustainable digital collections of cultural heritage materials. The workshop offers participants the chance to meet colleagues from various institutions who are facing similar challenges. Faculty and students share ideas and solutions to these challenges and make lasting professional connections. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from ARLIS/NA-VRAF, signed by the ARLIS/NA president and the VRA Foundation chair.
