48th Annual Georgia Archives Institute
June 8-19, 2015
Designed for beginning archivists, manuscript curators, and librarians, the Institute provides general instruction in basic concepts and practices of archival administration and the management of traditional and modern documentary materials. The two-week program is held at the Georgia Archives in Morrow, Georgia and includes five days of classroom instruction in basic concepts and one day of preservation instruction. To link archival theory with real world application, students will also participate in individualized, three-day internships at local archival repositories.
Gregory S. Hunter, Director of the Certificate of Advanced Studies in Archives and Records Management, Long Island University, will be the principal instructor. He is a Society of American Archivists Fellow and founding President of the Academy of Certified Archivists. Topics will include acquisition, appraisal, arrangement, description, and reference, as well as legal and administrative issues.
Tuition is $500 and enrollment is limited. Deadline is April 1, 2015 for receipt of application and $75 application fee (refunded if not admitted to Institute). Tuition scholarships are available from The Society of Georgia Archivists (www.soga.org) and The Friends of Georgia Archives and History (www.fogah.org)
