Without Consent: The Ethics of Disclosing Personal Information in Public Archives
This book explores the theoretical and practical issues associated with the administration of access to government-held personal information. Its theme is the balance archivists must strike in negotiating access to such information: how do archivists reconcile research and privacy interests concerning the disclosure of personal information? In situations where the two interests conflict, where do archivists' professional responsibilities lie?
". . . captured in the author's discussion are the three types of privacy that have emerged over time: territorial privacy; privacy of the person; and informational privacy. For archivists, it is this latter concept, the right to control one's personal information,that is the most relevant and it is well handled by MacNeil." --ROBERT J. HAYWARD, Archivaria (1992)
