ICA Human Rights Working Group Newsletters

I wanted to highlight briefly a valuable resource for information and recent news related to archives and human rights, the Newsletters of the Human Rights Working Group of the International Council on Archives.  Each newsletter begins with a brief essay on a different article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and how it relates to archives.  There are then brief summaries of international and national news related to archives from the previous month.  The newsletter is compiled by the great Trudy Huskamp Peterson, a former acting Archivist of the United States who is also the author of "Archives in Service to the State" which is required reading on the issue of captured documents in war.

You can also subscribe to the Newsletter here.
