Summer Educational Institute

Summer Educational Institute

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). Beginning with the first institute held at Duke University in 2004 the goals for SEI have remained constant; to provide information 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. Since 2004 nearly 400 visual resources professionals, librarians, museum professionals, graduate students, and individuals from an ever-widening number of fields have attended SEI.

If you have any questions about SEI, please contact SEI Co-Chairs Leslie Chapman or Courtney Baron.
