SESSION 406 - Postcustodial Theory of Archives: A Debate (and We're Not Talking About Janitors)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Witness and participate in a debate about the post-custodial approach to managing and providing access to archival collections. The postcustodial theory of archives suggests that "archivists will no longer physically acquire and maintain records,” but that they “will provide management oversight for records that will remain in the custody of the record creators." Affirmative and Negative teams present points and counterpoints to support their positions and rebut those of their counterparts. Audience participation is encouraged!  (Negative Team: Chaudron, Hight; Affirmative Team: O'Neal, Sangwand)
