July 2014—The Society of American Archivists will publish a series of case studies designed to facilitate an understanding of ethical issues in the management of archives and records. The case studies are to draw on the principles set forth in the current Code of Ethics for Archivists, developed by the Committee on Ethics and Professional Conduct (CEPC) and approved by the SAA Council in January 2012. Case studies will be peer reviewed using a single-blind process. They will be published electronically and distributed through the SAA website under a Creative Commons license, with copyright retained by the authors. Suggested use for these case studies includes as teaching tools in graduate archival education programs and in continuing education workshops, as well as generally by archivists to stimulate dialogue and thought.
