Description

Without Consent is an exploration of the theoretical and practical issues associated with the administration of access to government-held personal information generally, and to personal information held in government archive specifically. 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 does archivists' professional responsibility lie?
