SEI seeks to provide information professionals with a substantive educational and professional development opportunity focused on digital images, 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. The intensive three and a half-day workshop features a curriculum that specifically addresses the requirements of today’s visual resources and image management professionals with courses on intellectual property, metadata, and the digital life cycle. SEI 2015 will be held June 9-12, 2015 at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
Applications for the SEI 2015 Attendance Award are due by 5pm Friday, April 24, 2015.  The application should include a resume and a letter demonstrating your interest in attending the workshop and need for financial support.  Please send the documents via email to rpw@umich.edu , klonbom@ilstu.edu , and amather@artic.edu.
If you have any questions about the scholarship or the application, contact Rebecca Price at rpw@umich.edu.

Correction: Design the ARLIS/NW Chapter's logo!

*please excuse cross-postings*

It was brought to my attention that under the Intellectual Property section of our submission guidelines, it was stated that ALL entries would become the property of the Chapter. That is incorrect. It now states that the winning entry will become property of the Chapter and that the winning designer will be credited/acknowledged where appropriate.

I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Please let me know if you have questions.

ARLIS/NA Texas-Mexico Chapter 2015 Lois Swan Jones Professional Development Award Winner

*please excuse cross-postings*

Congratulations Becca Pad! On behalf of the ARLIS/NA Texas-Mexico Chapter, I would like to announce this year’s recipient of the 2015 Lois Swan Jones Professional Development Award. As a MIS student at the University of Texas at Austin and the Ask a Librarian Graduate Research Assistant at the Perry Castaneda Library, Becca still finds time to support ARLIS/NA. At the ARLIS/NA 43rd Annual Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, she will present a poster with her colleague Laura Schwartz titled: Art and Design Book Club: An Outreach and Engagement Tool, UT Austin Fine Arts Library.

The $500 award will support expenses related to attending the ARLIS/NA annual conference in Fort Worth, Texas from March 19–23, 2015. In addition to taking advantage of a wide selection of conference programming, Becca will write an article on her conference experience for the issue of the Chapter’s newsletter The Medium that follows the conference.

The LSJ award honors the memory of Lois Swan Jones, Professor Emerita of art history at the University of North Texas and charter member of the Texas Chapter. Established in 1992, the award supports and encourages participation of a member of the ARLIS/NA Texas-Mexico Chapter at the national level by helping with conference expenses. Professor Jones authored several standard publications on art information research methods and received the 1996 ARLIS/NA Distinguished Service Award. The combination of her enthusiasm, commitment to education, and love for art history serves as a model for art information professionals.

I would also like to thank our Chapter contributors who made this year’s award possible. For full information about the LSJ award, including a list of previous winners, visit: http://www.arlis-txmx.org/lsj-award
