The Archival Education and Research Institute (AERI) is dedicated to supporting archival education. Part of a broader effort called Building the Future of Archival Education and Research Initiative, AERI was originally funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Now in its eighth consecutive year, AERI brings together incoming and continuing doctoral students, recent doctoral graduates, and faculty from across the United States and worldwide.
