Description

Values in Design: Defining a Privacy-Aware Model for Web Access to Archives

Philosopher Helen Nissenbaum's construct of contextual integrity addresses challenges for protecting privacy in the age of information technologies. It is especially relevant to issues that archivists face in managing holdings in a digital environment. Focusing on ways the construct may apply to archival theory and practice, the speakers demonstrate how contextual integrity may be applied to archival models on the Web and to current processing standards, as well as best practices that may be applied to minimally processed collections.
