Preserving Collections, Ensuring Access

Panel 2: Open Access or Sensitive Information? Thinking Through Policy Making for Archival Collections that Include a Mixture of Legal Records, Professional Papers, and Indigenous Knowledge Sat, 16 Feb 2019 11:45am (15m) (global) - Ellen-Rae Cachola, University of Hawai’i School of Law Library
My presentation will discuss standards regarding information access and use that inform policy making at the University of Hawaii School of Law Library Archives. Specifically, I address general principles of the Montreal Declaration of "Free Access to Law," along with the Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Archival Services Policy, and the Protocols for Native American Archives. Thinking through these principles, I will share some ideas developed at the UH Law Library’s archive to work through concerns regarding open access, copyright, privacy and culturally sensitive items relating to various Indigenous Pacific Islander’s knowledge.
