SLIS Hosts International AERI Conference, July 8-12

Archival Education & Research Institute Comes to KSU

Kent State SLIS will host the 8th annual Archival Education and Research Institute (AERI) July 8-12, 2016.

These weeklong Institutes, held every summer, are designed to strengthen education and research and support academic cohort-building and mentoring. Institutes are open to all academic faculty and doctoral students working in Archival Studies, both nationally and internationally.

AERI is dedicated to supporting archival evidence and bringing together incoming and continuing doctoral students, recent doctoral graduates, and faculty from across the United States and worldwide. AERI was originally funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The fall season is upon us and the crispness in the air is lending to a “can do” spirit here at the iSchool. Fall brings a time of reflection as we take stock of all that was accomplished over the spring and summer term as we enter the remaining term of 2023.
