After Hotel Rwanda and Welcome to Sarajevo: Preserving Trial Evidence and Documentation in a Multi-Media Age

Sunday, July 11
1:30am – 2:45pm
Level: Intermediate.
Competency: Core Competencies for Law Librarianship
Sponsor: FCIL-SIS

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) is scheduled to close in 2010, and many questions have arisen as to the best way to preserve materials, which encompass different media and archival, policy, technological, and security concerns, such as safety issues for witnesses and judges. Using this case study, the speakers will discuss how law librarians can help organizations retain information for the future and the different technologies that can be used. The lessons learned can be extrapolated to other trial collections and judges' papers.
