2015 Annual General Meeting
Please join LASA and Associate Professor, Dominique Clement, at the Law Society of Alberta in Edmonton and Calgary on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.for an interesting overview of Freedom of Informationand the many issues facing historical and archival investigation.
Federal and Provincial freedom of information law and policy is increasingly more effective at concealing government records for historical research than providing access. The debate over FOI is also part of a fundamental realignment in the nature of archival work and archive’s relationship with researchers. This presentation examines how FOI laws facilitate and restrict historical research, recent litigation over the application of the law, and how we can move forward in respecting individual privacy while protecting the public’s right to information.
