Laura A. Millar con A Matter of Facts: The Value of Evidence in an Information Age

Reseña del editor The safeguarding of authentic facts is essential, especially in this disruptive Orwellian age, where digital technologies have opened the door to a post-truth world in which ""alternative facts"" can be so easily accepted as valid. And because facts matter, archives matter. In this urgent manifesto, archives luminary Millar makes the case that authentic and accurate evidence is crucial in supporting and fostering a society that is respectful, democratic, and self-aware. An eye-opening treatise for the general public, an invaluable resource for archives students, and a provocative call-to-arms for working professionals, Millar's book explains the concept of evidence and discusses the ways in which records, archives, and data are not just useful tools for our daily existence but also essential sources of evidence both today and in the future; includes plentiful examples that illustrate the critical role evidence plays in upholding rights, enforcing responsibilities, tracing family or community stories, and capturing and sharing memories; and examines the impact of digital technologies on how records and information are created and used. With documentary examples ranging from Mesopotamian clay tablets to World War II photographs to today's Twitter messages and Facebook posts, Millar's stirring book will encourage readers to understand more fully the importance of their own records and archives, for themselves and for future generations.
