AERI 2015 is part of an ongoing project called Building the Future of Archival Education and Research, which has received two four-year grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services – Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program. This project works in collaboration with leading archival education programs in the U.S. to train and support future archival faculty. This initiative aims to stimulate the growth of a new generation of academics in archival education who are versed in contemporary issues and knowledgeable of the work being conducted by colleagues. To achieve this goal, the project nurtures and promotes state-of-the-art scholarship in Archival Science, broadly conceived, and encourages curricular and pedagogical innovation in archival education across the United States and worldwide.
