SESSION 202 - Archival Ethics: What Would You Do? How Would You Do It?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do you respond when you’re thrust into ethical dilemmas of privacy and confidentiality, donor relations, conflicts of interest, or other ethical challenges? An important aspect of professional ethics is the ability to talk with colleagues and to share diverse ways of approaching these challenging situations. The session puts the participants and the panel on the spot--without actors, props, or hidden cameras--to discuss everyday ethical scenarios that reflect on how we react, why we react the way we do, and what we decide to do. The panel presents scenarios and facilitates "What-would-you-do?" opportunities with the audience. Attendees are invited to bring or submit anonymously to the panel of experts their own "What-would-you-do?" situations. Submissions may be sent to jgraham@library.ucla.edu no later than July 1, 2013. (This session will not be recorded.)
