The 27th annual Western Archives Institute will be held at the
University of California, Riverside from July 7-19, 2013.  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.

Gregory S. Hunter, Ph.D., CA, CRM, has graciously agreed to serve as
Principal Faculty Member for the 2013 Institute. He is a Professor
at the Palmer School of Library and Information Science, Long Island
University, and is Editor of The American Archivist.  He holds a
Ph.D. in American History from New York University.  Prior to
joining the Palmer School in 1990, Dr. Hunter was Director of
Archival Programs for the United Negro College Fund and Manager of
Corporate Records for ITT Corporation. He is a Distinguished Fellow
of the Society of American Archivists, and two of his books have
received awards from the Society of American Archivists.  He also
served as Principal Archivist and Records Manager on the team that
designed and built the Electronic Records Archives for the National
Archives and Records Administration.  Dr. Hunter was the founding
President of the Academy of Certified Archivists and he also is a
Certified Records Manager.

Tuition for the Institute is $700 and includes a selection of
archival publications. Other non-negotiable fees including program
transportation, facility fees, opening dinner, and luncheon at the
closing program will be available in early February, 2013.  Housing
