    Merging various philosophical principles with specific privacy problems, this illuminating resource reflects the multiplicity of perspectives that archivists need to consider when confronted with difficult issues. Chapters offer historical context for current concerns, share innovative approaches to resolving privacy dilemmas, and develop sophisticated theoretical frameworks upon which to consider issues in broad and overarching ways.

    The book addresses archival privacy and confidentiality in four areas: legal perspectives focus on the key concepts that define American privacy law; ethical perspectives present new work by archivists who approach the issues from a more philosophical perspective; administrative perspectives contain case studies by archival administrators who have attempted to resolve especially troublesome real-world situations in their repositories; and institutional perspectives address how specific institutional contexts play critical roles in resolving privacy questions.
