The 26th 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 application deadline for the
2012 Western Archives Institute is March 30,
2012. For additional program information, see
