2011 Archival Education and Research Institute (AERI)
"Research and Teaching Across Archival Communities"
SImmons College
July 10-15, 2011

The third annual AERI was hosted on the Simmons College campus from July 10-15, 2011.
AERI 2011 is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and is the third of a series of four week-long Archival Education and Research Institutes (AERI) that were held in 2009 and 2010. The fourth will be held in 2012. AERI brings together incoming and continuing doctoral students, faculty and professionals 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 host for the fourth AER Institute will be the University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) (2012).
