This book is the result of recent research by postgraduate students in archivistics in University College Dublin. Their work addresses many of the issues faced by archive, records management and information specialists, and many of the expectations of the societies that rely on their services. The areas addressed include legal and ethical challenges, medical and community archives, advocacy and user perspectives, governance and accountability. Researched with a post-modern framework, the essays challenge and interrogate established views and provide exciting professional perspectives from a new generation of archivists.

Contributors: Leah Benson, Julie L.N. Brooks, Niamh Collins, Antoinette Doran, Louise Kennedy, Brian Kirby, Kevin Lohan, Kirsten Mulrennan, David Ryan, Emma Saunders, Pauline Swords, Harriet Wheelock, Catherine Wright.
