SEI 2017 Instructor of the Week: Julie Rudder

We’re thrilled to round out the roster for this year’s  amazing instructors for the 2017 Summer Educational Institute. We know you’ve been keeping up with our highlights, so without further ado…

We’re happy to introduce Julie Rudder, Repository Librarian at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Libraries. Julie will be co-leading this year’s SEI Un-conference, along with Justin Schell, Will Shaw and Laura Fu. If you haven’t experienced an Un-conference or a THATcamp before, it’s YOUR chance to bring your questions, topics of interest, and queries to the group. You’ll have the SEI instructors, SEI co-chairs, and all of your peers to workshop topics and questions. Is there something that has really been bugging you at work, something that would be perfect for SEI but isn’t on the curriculum?  Bring it to the Un-conference! Or maybe something comes up during the week at one of the workshops – jot it down and remember it at the Un-conference!
