In July 2013, archivists, records managers, and IT professionals from 26 states, 4 territories, and the District of Columbia gathered for the week-long State Electronic Records Initiative (SERI) Introductory Electronic Records Institute.

The Introductory Institute, one of three electronic records institutes, was held at the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis on July 8-12, 2013 and was organized and offered by CoSA through an IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant.
