Professor Karin Rosemblatt Blog Post: Balancing Privacy and Archival Access

See Professor Karin Rosemblatt's blog post on the University of North Carolina Press Blog:  "Balancing Privacy and Archival Access". 

"How should archival institutions balance privacy concerns with the need for access? Preserving privacy is important, certainly. But it is an imperative that needs to be balanced against the benefits of public knowledge. Moreover, access to information may benefit precisely those whose privacy archivists ostensibly aim to protect. Protecting privacy may allow unethical medical experiments or government violations of privacy to remain hidden."
