Legal Issues: Ethics Webinar Recording Now Available!
Consulting Archivists Clare Flemming and Brandon Zimmerman discussed some of the more common ethical issues that cultural collecting institutions regularly face and the professional codes of ethics governing archival institutions, including professional relationships; judgement; authenticity; security and protection; access and use, privacy, and trust. The two illustrated tricky ethical situations by pulling examples from their professional experience and provided guidance about what to do when faced with hard decisions—even providing advice for tough hypotheticals raised from participants.
