Privacy and Confidentiality Perspectives: Archivists and Archival Records (PDF)

Edited by Menzi L Behrnd-Klodt  and Peter J. Wosh 

MARAC Arline Custer Memorial Award

"Privacy and Confidentiality Perspectives brings together a diverse selection of thoughtful and provocative essays that explore the legal, ethical, administrative, and institutional considerations that shape archival debates concerning the administration of access to records containing personal information. It is essential reading for archivists, records managers, archival educators and students who wish to gain a deeper understanding of this difficult archival issue-and it is bound to stimulate broader reflection and debate."
--NADINE STROSSEN, President, American Civil Liberties Union, and Professor of Law, New York Law School

"Privacy and Confidentiality Perspectives fills a crucial void in the corpus of archival literature. . . . Based upon the knowledge and experience of professionals who already have been forced to navigate their way through the maze of competing interests and the seemingly contradictory precedents, the readings describe situations to which archivists from any type of repository can relate. Archival educators especially will find this anthology a gold mine of current information that can be used to stimulate thought and discussion in classes and help to prepare the next generation of archivists for the challenges they will face."
--TIMOTHY L. ERICSON, former Director of Archival Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
