Sarah Vornholt received funding from the UHM Graduate Student Organization to attend the Summer Education Institute for Visual Resource Management at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, June 19 through 22. The GSO awarded Sarah $595 to cover the institute’s fee. The institute is being sponsored by the Visual Resource Association and the Art Library Society of North America.
In applying for the grant, Sarah emphasized that the LIS Program did not have courses directly related to visual resource management (digital images) and that knowledge in this field would improve her chances of obtaining a job as an art librarian. Sarah said, “I am grateful the GSO recognized the educational quality of this institute.”
