resources and library and information science.  Tuition will be $675

Reasonably priced accommodations in the Wilkie Residence Center will
also be available for approximately $40 per night, single occupancy, or
the Indiana Memorial Union for approximately $86 per night, single
occupancy.  Detailed Information about the Housing Options, the Optional
meal card, travel options, and other local information is now posted on
the SEI Website.  Housing and meal registration will begin in a few
weeks.  http://www.vraweb.org/seiweb/index.html

Please join us for what promises to be another outstanding educational
opportunity.
