Archival Education and Research Institute (AERI) 2013
University of Texas at Austin
Monday June 17 to Friday June 21, 2013

The fifth annual Archival Education and Research Institute (AERI) was held on June 17-21, 2013 at the University of Texas at Austin.

The Building the Future of Archival Education and Research project represents an unprecedented and exciting collaboration among the leading archival education programs in the U.S. to train and support future archival faculty. The Institutes, which began in 2009, are funded by two four-year grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services - Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program.  Our goal is to stimulate the growth of a new generation of academics in archival education who are versed in contemporary issues and knowledgeable about the work being conducted by colleagues. The initiative seeks to nurture and promote the state of the art in scholarship in Archival Studies, as well as to encourage curricular and pedagogical innovation and research collaboration in archival education across the U.S. and worldwide.  AERI 2013 included presentations, posters, and workshops on current research, methodological approaches, and curriculum development. In addition, mentoring opportunities were offered throughout the week.
