Going to the New England Archivist's Fall 2016 Meeting? Working towards earning your DAS certificate? Make it a long weekend and register for SAA’s workshop on “Privacy and Confidentiality Issues in Digital Archives” on Thursday, October 13th at Hampshire College. Take advantage of this workshop taught by instructor Peter Hirtle who is known for his expert knowledge on addressing intellectual property issues.

This course covers privacy and confidentiality legal issues specific to archives of digital material. You'll examine the intersection of (and the tension between) privacy/confidentiality, free speech and freedom to research/write, and focus on how electronic records and the digital realm have altered the scene. You'll look at privacy and confidentiality issues in the context of third party rights, donors, special situations such as medical and education records, national security legislation, and the overriding impact of the digital world. Through case studies, you will examine specific situations pertinent to the work of archivists. While participants should be familiar with basic concepts of privacy and confidentiality, a brief review of the development of these concepts will be provided to ground the discussion. The focus of the day will be on how to think through and identify options for resolving the most commonly-encountered privacy and confidentiality legal issues around electronic records.

Early-bird registration ends TOMORROW, Tuesday, September 13th. For more information and to register, visit the SAA website. If you are a member of NEA, but not SAA, you are eligible for $25 off of the SAA non-member workshop rate.
