NOTES:
  • In 2002 an ARLIS/NA-VRA Joint Education Task Force (JETF) was formed and charged to develop an infrastructure and curriculum for a week-long summer institute of continuing education in image collection/visual resources management; to negotiate instructors and teaching materials for the institute; and to arrange its first venue and program schedule at Rice University (Houston, Texas) for early summer 2003. However, a decision was made in 2003 to move the inaugural SEI to Duke University, which would take place in the summer of 2004. One of the reasons was that the VRA conference had just been in Houston in 2003 and ARLIS' was going to be in Houston in 2005.
  • The first formal meeting of the JETF took place at the joint ARLIS/NA-VRA conference in St. Louis in 2002. Subsequent meetings occurred at VRA conferences in Houston (2003) and Portland (2004) and ARLIS/NA conferences in Baltimore (2003) and New York (2004). During the summer or fall of 2004 the JETF recommended it's dissolution and the creation of the Summer Educational Institute Implementation Team (SEI IT) to handle the planning of SEI 2005.
