Abstract

Over the last decade the role and responsibilities of archivists and records managers have shifted dramatically as record creation and capture has moved from paper to digital paradigms. Online collaborative tools have blurred the boundaries between personal and public spaces, authors and owners. Where and how records are created, held and owned? Where are the archives or records and to what extent is ownership and access guaranteed? With whom do we collaborate and cooperate? We are in a new world and the professional choices we make, together with the information ethics and legislation we shape, are now critical. This paper will discuss the emerging multi-disciplinary domain of information governance that our profession underpins but which also transcends and enfolds us. This paper will discuss the challenges faced in retaining, acquiring, holding and negotiating access to information through time. The discussion is positioned from a UK/European standpoint which provides a particular lens for the work, as Europe has possibly the toughest personal data and privacy legislation in the world which influences Information Governance leadership. The paper will seek to position this perspective within the context of wider international considerations. It will discuss our choices and the road ahead.
