WIKILEAKS & THE ARCHIVES & RECORDS PROFESSION: A PANEL DISCUSSION

Please join the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York and the Metro NYC Chapter of ARMA for a provocative discussion of our professional perspectives on WikiLeaks and the ramifications for the archives and records profession.

Do WikiLeaks and its complex, attendant issues shift our conceptualization of our roles as information professionals? How might WikiLeaks change the public's views on usage of and access to archives and records? To what extent is the most recent release of diplomatic cables a product of information mismanagement?

Addressing these and many more questions, our confirmed speakers include Trudy Peterson, former Acting Archivist of the United States (1993-1995) and current representative for the Society of American Archivists on the Department of State's Historical Advisory Committee; Fred Pulzello, Solutions Architect in the Information Governance practice at MicroLink LLC; Jim Fortmuller, Manager of Systems Security at Kelley Drye & Warren LLP in Washington, DC; Mark Matienzo, Digital Archivist in Manuscripts and Archives at Yale University Library; and Derek Bambauer, Associate Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School. The panel will be moderated by Peter Wosh, Director of the Archives/Public History Program and Clinical Associate Professor of History at New York University.

  2. I hope so! I did ask as I was unable to go myself. Do I hear any volunteers?
