From WITNESS Media Archive

From Grace Lile, an interesting posting on "Archival access: ethics, rights, obligations" in which she refers back to the June conversation on archival use and storytelling, launched by Rick Prelinger on his blog.

Lile also notes, "I am still working my way through Rand Jimerson’s excellent Archives Power: Memory, Accountability and Social Justice (2009: SAA). It is a wide-ranging book encompassing the history of archival theory and practice in societal terms, addressing the relationship of archives and documents to memory, justice, accountability, diversity, and societal power." Another one to add to the reading list!
