International Statement on Duty to Document During COVID-19 Pandemic

The International Council on Archives (ICA) and other information management organizations recently released a statement on the importance and need for governments, businesses, and research institutions to document their decisions and transactions during the COVID-19 pandemic:
"This is the most recent statement developed by ICA and the International Conference of Information Commissioners, supported by ARMA International, CODATA, Digital Preservation Coalition, Research Data Alliance, UNESCO Memory of the World and World Data System."

"The statement is built on three principles: Decisions must be documented, records and data should be secured and preserved in all sectors, and the security, preservation, and access to digital content should be facilitated during the shutdown."

"We hope the archives, records, data and allied communities will support the statement and join us in underscoring the importance of the duty to document, now and for the future."
