Article on University of Toronto's Searchable Database of Edward Snowden Documents

This is a follow-up to the Library Boy post of March 6, 2015 entitled Canadians Create New Searchable Database of Edward Snowden Documents.

U of T News,  the news website of the University of Toronto, published an article yesterday about the Snowden Surveillance Archive, a database of all the publicly released classified documents leaked by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

The Archive project was led by the university's Andrew Clement, a professor at the institution's "iSchool" (information studies):
"Launched in partnership with the Canadian Journalists for Free Expression, the archive is just one part of an international effort led by the iSchool's Clement to develop constructive responses by iSchools around the world to the growing challenge of mass state surveillance."

"A public statement endorsed by Clement and faculty at iSchools across North America calls for universities to: develop curriculum that addresses issues of mass state surveillance and prepare students to understand better the surveillance to which they are exposed; invite NSA and other government officials as guest course speakers to address issues of mass state surveillance and respond to student questions; and invite NSA whistleblowers and journalists who have covered the NSA disclosures as guest speakers to address issues of mass state surveillance and respond to student questions."
