Challenges facing The (UK) National Archives


TNA has posted an interview between Dr Andrew Foster from the Historical Association and member of The National Archives’ Strategic Academic Stakeholder Forum and Oliver Morley, Chief Executive and Keeper, The National Archives, which took place on 11 February 2013. It's the third in an almost annual series.
The interview covers the strategic challenges in the UK which have only some parallels in Canada. What's impressive is the contrast between the openness of Oliver Morley to discuss these issues, albeit in measured diplomatic language, and the closed approach of the leadership of Library and Archives Canada.

Very intereating. But reading today's article about Library and Archives Canada I would have to think there is not much comparison at all between LAC and TNA in many aspects: "Federal librarians fear being ‘muzzled’ under new code of conduct" by Margaret Munro, Postmedia News March 15, 2013 http://www.canada.com/Federal+librarians+fear+being+muzzled+under+code+conduct/8105500/story.html
