CAA Archives Salon Winter 2016

Chicago Area Archivists invites CAA members and interested others to attend the Archives Salon, an informal discussion on a topic of interest to archivists, historians, librarians, and records managers.


When: Thursday, February 18, 6:30pm-8:00pm

Where: Efebina's Cafe, 1640 S Blue Island Ave., Chicago


There is no entrance fee to this event, but Efebina’s kindly requests that all attendees make a minimum purchase of $4.


This Archives Salon will be an open discussion on issues of privacy and security in archives in the digital age. As archives professionals, how can we balance our commitment to access with the need for privacy and security? How do we educate our donors and users on these issues?

Several high-profile incidents on this topic reported in the media recently prompted this Salon discussion, including the developments at the University of Oregon and the issues with government email. Attendees may find it useful to review these events before the Salon: “The Oregonian” has covered the UO situation extensively, and the SAA Issues and Advocacy Roundtable has a list of links.  Attendees are also encouraged to check their favorite blogs for coverage on these issues, and use their search engine of choice.


Join your colleagues for an open-ended, unmoderated discussion. Come having brushed up on current events in this area, and be prepared to share your thoughts, listen to those of your colleagues, and respond.


This is a free event but registration is requested. If you have questions about this event, contact
