Designed for beginning archivists, manuscript curators, and librarians, the Georgia Archives Institute offers general instruction in the basic concepts and practices of archival administration and management of traditional and modern documentary materials.

It also includes one day of instruction in preservation and one day of electronic records to introduce students to the basics of creation and preservation of digital records. The Institute is held at the Georgia Archives in Morrow, Georgia, 15 miles south of Atlanta.

The Georgia Archives Institute, Inc. is a non-profit organization, administered by a Board of Directors composed of professional archivists from a variety of institutions. The annual institute is co-sponsored by the Georgia Archives, the Society of Georgia Archivists, the Friends of Georgia Archives and History, and the Auburn Avenue Research Library. Area archival institutions contribute to the success of the program by providing three-day internships for Institute students.

Student evaluations praise both the content and the networking opportunities. Institute participation creates a network of colleagues with similar experiences, contacts with professional archivists, and an overview of a variety of archival organizations. The Institute enhances the work of those already in the field and provides a foundation for those entering the field. As one recent Institute graduate remarked regarding a new position:

"While they liked my work experience, it was the Institute that gave me the edge in this difficult period of jobs and the economy."

 

 

The 47th Annual Institute will be held June 9 – 20, 2014.
