Enroll in One – Attend All
If you want an archives education that offers high quality and rich diversity, look no further than the AEC schools. At AEC schools, archives students have classmates and instructors on three campuses in three different states, but AEC classes look and feel very much as if everyone were in a single classroom. Interested? Read on.
The AEC schools, Auburn University, Louisiana State University, and Middle Tennessee State University, share faculty and students through live classes delivered as live synchronous course over Internet 2, Adobe connect, or Skype; they provide their students one of the finest archives education programs in the United States.
Each university teaches its own Introduction to Archives course and provides courses, taught by a specialist in the topic, to the partner schools. From Auburn: Management of Archives, History of Archives and Records Keeping and Developing a Digital Archives; from LSU: a course in the
the application of EAD and EAC and Advanced Issues in Access to Archival Materials; and from MTSU: Records Management and Public Programming for Archives and Museums.
The diversity of courses and the specialized knowledge of the faculty make the AEC offerings challenging and rewarding. The live interaction among students and faculty from partner universities make them especially rich. But they cost no more than regular courses on campus. By combining the AEC courses with their own archives-related courses, all the schools provide a unique archives specialization to students on their home campuses.
For an education in archives management that goes beyond the ordinary, consider the AEC and the AEC schools.
