It's officially Spring and that means it's time for us to highlight the
<http://seiworkshop.org/curriculum/instructors-2/> for this year’s Summer
Educational Institute (SEI), and we’ll be highlighting one instructor from
the 2017 curriculum <https://seiworkshop.org/curriculum/schedule-2015/>
each week during the months of April and May - we hope you'll tune in and
better yet, come meet them and learn with us
We’re happy to introduce Nancy Sims, who will be kicking off SEI with Part
1 of our Intellectual Property Module. Nancy Sims is the University of
Minnesota Library’s subject specialist on copyright issues. She is both a
librarian and a lawyer, has extensive experience working in academic
libraries, and is fascinated by the pervasiveness of copyright issues in
modern life. Nancy advocates for policies and practices that support
sustainable scholarship, democratic information access, and public
participation in cultural heritage collections.
Did you know?
A veteran of SEI, she first presented at the 2015 SEI and loved it! She
blew away the audience with her copyright knowledge and presentation style,
and has been coming back ever since! We’re excited to welcome her back for
her third year in a row and think it’s pretty cool that SEI brings people
like this together, don’t you?
Nancy maintains a blog <http://simsjd.com/copyrightlibn/> and a twitter
<https://twitter.com/copyrightlibn?lang=en> account in which she weighs in
on things large and small related to copyright, intellectual property and
fair use. We hope to see you at SEI, though, where we’ll get to engage in
face to face discussion with the copyright maven herself!
In its 14th year as a joint program between the Art Libraries Society of
North America <https://www.arlisna.org/> (ARLIS/NA) and the Visual
Resources Association Foundation <http://www.vrafoundation.org/> (VRAF),
SEI 2107 will be held at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
<http://www.unc.edu/>, from June 6-9, 2017.
SEI provides new and more experienced professionals opportunities to stay
current in rapidly changing fields of digitization, project management,
fair use and copyright, metadata, and digital preservation, as well as
significant networking opportunities -- BUT -- it's filling up. *Register
