Renowned and inspiring speakers from the Netherlands and abroad shared their views on these developments, using the core values from the International Council of Archives code of ethics for archivists. What do concepts such as integrity, authenticity, accessibility and privacy – concepts that are so familiar to us in the paper world – mean in the digital world? Will the archivists and other information professionals of the future still be the keepers of these values, or will they one day be digitally regulated on the basis of algorithms? Are the core values actually still relevant? And what new principles with regard to information do we need in the digital world?
