The 25th annual Western Archives Institute will be held at
California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, July 8-20, 2012.
The Western Archives Institute is an intensive, two-week program
that provides integrated instruction in basic archival practices to
individuals with a variety of backgrounds, including those whose
jobs require a fundamental understanding of archival skills, but who
have little or no previous archives education; those who have
expanding responsibility for archival materials; those who are
practicing archivists but have not received formal instruction; and
those who demonstrate a commitment to an archival career.

The Institute also features site visits to historical records
repositories and a diverse curriculum that includes history and
development of the profession, theory and terminology, records
management, appraisal, arrangement, description, manuscripts
acquisition, archives and the law, photographs, preservation
administration, reference and access, outreach programs, and
managing archival programs and institutions.
