Dr. Laura A. Millar
The safeguarding of authentic facts is essential, especially in this disruptive Orwellian age, where digital technologies have opened the door to a post-truth world in which “alternative facts” can be so easily accepted as valid. And because facts matter, evidence matters. 
 
In this urgent manifesto, archives luminary Millar makes the case that authentic and accurate records, archives, data and other sources of documentary proof are crucial in supporting and fostering a society that is respectful, democratic and self-aware.
