This project included conducting semi-structured interviews with 33 full-time graduate archival educators and a survey that received responses from 406 students and new archival professionals on the topics of the challenges and opportunities relating to current and future graduate archival education. The findings of these studies have been disseminated in the following peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations.
