The Access and Privacy Special Interest Section presents this exploration of the impact of digital technology on these two important archival issues. Have archives had successes in this area? What has led to these successes? Or - where have our failures been and why? What special issues exist for archivists responsible for granting or denying access to archival records in digital form? How do we deal with transferring digital government records knowing that access to these records presents both a technical and practical problem for our institutions? The panel will present their experiences, views and suggestions for the future in dealing with this issue.
