AERI provides a dynamic venue for archival researchers and teachers to interact in an intensive, collegial collaborative environment. Topics ranged from the grand challenges facing the field to the future of higher education and universities.

The conference began with an opening reception sponsored by Pitt’s University Library System where attendees gathered to socialize after an intense day of plenaries, paper sessions, and workshops. More than 100 students and faculty from 11 countries attended the conference and presented on topics such as web infrastructures, archival representation, open government, material culture and archives, scholarly publishing, archival access, information culture and social justice.
