Protecting Public Trust: An Archival Wake-Up Call
Speck, Jason G.
Journal of Archival Organization, v8 n1 p31-53 2010
While archivists and their repositories depend a great deal on public trust, they do little to cultivate or protect it. All too often, the archival community is passive where it should be fiercely proactive. This article aims to show archivists how they can build on the trust they have and avoid many of the problems that have plagued the archival community in recent years, some of which have run the risk of irrevocably damaging the archival profession's reputation. (Contains 87 notes.)
