SESSION 606 - Privacy v. Access: Legal and Ethical Challenges in High-Profile Collections

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

While abiding by the mission of providing access, should institutions make privacy exceptions in high-profile cases? Should creators of records be notified when access is either required or restricted by law? How do shifting interpretations and external pressures affect curators’ decisions? Panelists discuss records related to the Dr. Kevorkian-assisted suicides, the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
