Policy Matters February 14-15, 2019
UBC, Vancouver, BC
The Association of Canadian Archivists Student Chapter at the University of British Columbia (ACA@UBC) is delighted to present its annual international Seminar and Symposium, Policy Matters, which will be held from February 14th to 15th, 2019.
The event is held at the UBC Vancouver campus, which occupies ancestral and unceded territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking Musqueam people.
Whether to enact legislation and regulations, to implement standards and codes of professional ethics, or to meet the demand for the use of new technologies and societal or community requirements, policies guide nearly all aspects of recordkeeping, archival, and information practices. Recent technological and cultural shifts mean that records and archives professionals increasingly have to reconcile demands internal to the profession with those of their stakeholders, partners, users and society at large.
The 11th annual ACA@UBC Seminar and Symposium will explore the multifaceted role of policy in the history, present and future of the records and archives professions.
