News from Planning Committee of the Congress Memory, human rights and good practice in university and research archives
The Planning Committee of the Congress ‘Memory, human rights and good practice in university and research archives: different views, a single objective’ with regret informs colleagues, speakers and interested parties of the decision to cancel the event scheduled from September 29 to October 2 at the Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia). The decision has been made because of the public health emergency caused by the Covid-19 virus (Coronavirus) and the consequences of this in the short and medium term. It is likely that the economic and mobility restrictions, among others, that we as individuals and institutions are currently experiencing, will continue over the coming months.
Despite this decision, as a Committee we value and appreciate the interest and support of all of you in this initiative, especially those who sent a proposal for a paper. We had more than 70 proposals for papers, from 18 countries, and would like to ensure that this interest and work is not lost so we will begin to investigate ways to exchange experiences and views on the topic through virtual and other non-face-to-face means.
