Webinar description:

Join the AABC & BCMA for this cross-themed webinar. Cultural heritage professionals have a mandate to protect records and information, while promoting their accessibility and use. Although these two mandates seem contradictory, there are ways forward that balance privacy and access. This 1 hour webinar will present an approach to managing personal information in cultural heritage collections. It will present an overview of basic privacy principles, outline factors to consider when releasing information, and describe tools that can be used to ensure personal information is released in compliance with legal and ethical considerations.  

Presenter: Alexandra Wieland, Information and Privacy Archivist at Simon Fraser University
