"We Shape Our Tools, and Our Tools Shape Us"
February 06 - February 08, 2013
Vancouver, BC, Canada

This year’s 5th annual ACA@UBC International Seminar and Symposium explored different technologies along the records lifecycle and examined how they have come to influence the way records are being created, retained and ultimately preserved for current and future generations of archivists, records managers, and users. The Symposium provided an excellent opportunity for experts, visiting professionals, and students to discuss and explore the different types of technologies available to them today, as well as the different challenges that these same tools present to current and future users.

"The Law of Unintended Consequences: The Right to Be Forgotten, the Duty to Remember"
February 09 - February 11, 2011
Vancouver, BC, Canada

Inspired by current issues in social media, the web, and mobile communications, which are producing a documentary heritage quite different from the traditional one, the Association of Canadian Archivists UBC Student Chapter (ACA@UBC) organized a seminar and symposium aimed at opening an interdisciplinary dialogue among the custodians of the world documentary heritage about the preservation of its newest forms and expressions. The topic, "The Law of Unintended Consequences: The right to be forgotten, the duty to remember," was relevant to a wide and diverse audience including, but not limited to, archivists and librarians, other information specialists, historians, computer scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists and anyone interested in heritage and memory. In particular, we openly discussed topics pertinent to social media, the Web, and mobile communications, and their preservation, privacy matters as well as other ethical and legal issues.
