2023 AABC & ARMA Vancouver Island Joint Conference

"Access Ability: Exploring Themes of Access in Archives and Information Management"

Date: Friday, April 28, 2023

Location: Wilna Thomas Building, Camosun College Lansdowne Campus, Victoria, BC

Format: Hybrid format (in-person and online)

As archivists and information professionals, we serve the public, our community and/or our co-workers through access. “Accessing our collections” is often one of the most clicked webpages on an archives website, while information professionals similarly endeavour to improve the findability of records. This can involve collaboration with privacy and legal experts to limit access to records to certain approved individuals. Disability activists and Indigenous communities have also reminded us that access cannot and should not be a one-size-fits-all solution. Many of us are also still perfecting our remote access models, which we had to accelerate as a result of the ongoing pandemic. The purpose of this conference is to share resources and ideas related to improved access. After all, access is the primary consideration of archives and records management!

The speaker schedule for the conference will be available shortly on the conference website: ACCESS / ABILITY – 2023 AABC/ARMA VI Joint Conference
