The second annual AERI 2010 was hosted on the University Michigan Ann Arbor campus from June 20-25, Sunday - Friday.  There was a diverse line up of Archival faculty, professionals, and students presenting at this gathering. Institute activities included mentoring sessions for both doctoral students and faculty and teaching staff, methodology workshops, curriculum development seminars, a poster session, research presentations, guest speakers, and field trips.

AERI 2010 is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and is the second in a series of four week-long Archival Education and Research Institutes (AERI), to be held in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. AERI brings together incoming and continuing doctoral students and faculty from across the United States and worldwide.

The goals of AERI aim to advance the field of Archival Studies by:
   1. Creating a dynamic community of researchers, teachers, and students to help mentor doctoral students and faculty in areas such as thesis writing, grant writing, publishing, and career development.
   2. Advancing curriculum development in Archival Studies.
   3. Furthering current research development through presentations, posters, and workshop activities.
   4. Fostering interest in future collaborations both nationally and internationally. AERI will provide a dynamic venue for archival researchers and teachers to interact in an intensive, collegial collaborative environment. Future hosts for the Institute will include Simmons College (2011) and the University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) (2012).
