This book contains the first and second volume papers from the 8th International Conference on the History of Records and Archives (I-CHORA 8). Contributors present articles that propose new solutions and aspirations for a new era in the technology of archives and recordkeeping. Topics cover rethinking the role played by archivists, and reframing recordkeeping practices that focus on the rights of the subjects of the records. This text appeals to students, researchers and professionals in the field.
