SESSION 408 - Access to Religious Archives Impacted by Clergy Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Recently many archivists of religious collections have experienced heightened interest in records within their custody, brought on by allegations of clergy sexual misconduct. Panelists elaborate on their professional situations, but look as well for common themes concerning lessons learned and efforts made to maintain an appropriate level of service to both internal and external users. They also reflect on how their experience has influenced, and perhaps challenged, their view of SAA's Core Values and Code of Ethics, especially those aspects relating to access and use.
