SEI 2017 Instructor of the Week: Anne Young

We’re thrilled to introduce the amazing instructors for this year’s Summer Educational Institute, many of whom are joining us for the first time! We’ll be highlighting one instructor from the 2017 curriculum each week, so be sure to stay tuned.

We’re happy to introduce Anne Young, Manager of Rights and Reproduction at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and Anne will be leading our Second Intellectual Property Module, and then will team up with Nancy Sims for “Let’s Get Practical: IP and Image Rights Case Studies.”


Anne Young

Did you know?

Anne was the 2017 Visual Resources Association Nancy DeLaurier Award winner. Honored for her groundbreaking work editing the Rights & Reproductions: The Handbook for Cultural Institutions, the first comprehensive resource to focus solely on the rights and reproductions guidelines, established standards and emerging best practices at cultural institutions, this publication was co-published in 2015 by the Indianapolis Museum of Art and American Alliance of Museums.

Anne maintains a twitter account in which she tweets on museums, photography, reproductions, intellectual property, and more. We hope to see you at SEI to engage in what’s sure to be a great discussion and workshop!

In its 14th year as a joint program between the  Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and the Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF), SEI 2107 will be held at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, from June 6-9, 2017.

SEI provides both new and more experienced professionals the opportunity 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. As a 2015 SEI graduate noted, “The curriculum was excellent in scope, striking a balance between detailed, practical exploration of relevant skills & tools, and putting these in the context of broader issues in visual resources/arts librarianship.”
