Archives Studies Certificate

About

The Archives Studies Certificate Program (ASC) is an 18-credit hour certificate program through the School of Library and Information Management (SLIM) and Emporia State University’s Graduate Office. The goal of the Archives Studies Certificate Program is to prepare students for a career in an archives or special collections setting. Students learn:

  • ways of providing access to and preserving materials that are of enduring value and serve as the cultural memory of a society;
  • the uniqueness of archives materials and library special collections and the techniques and processes that are necessary to manage and maintain these materials and collections; and,
  • the diversity of the formats in which information is organized and delivered and the resulting complexity of information organization, storage, maintenance, and preservation.
