Oops, I meant to link to this great post last week, and didn’t. It’s still great anyway. FOIman, who is a UK freedom of information practitioner, shares his perspective on why archives and archivists matter. “Archives are the ultimate form of accountability – or should be”. And as more openness is expected in government, the roles of archivists in managing this will be even more important than back in the day when files could just be kept closed. I so agree!
