FACTS ARE SACRED

Archives: The Journal of the British Records Association (2020), 55, (1), 31–37.

Abstract

The issue of lack of trust in institutions and information in our present-day society should be of great concern to archivists, record creators and historians. A forum on Archives and Records in a Post-truth World was convened by the BRA with participants from national archive and research organisations in the UK. Their contribution and suggestions for tackling this concern are discussed. A Steering Committee has been set up to act on some of the suggested outcomes, including improvements in teaching digital literacy, archiving public enquiries and Brexit.
