Changes is access to collections and data.

Zeldenrust, D.A. (2019). Changes in access to collections and data: impact and coping strategies of collection and data departments with regard to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Poster session with abstract presented at the DHBenelux 2019 conference. Université de Liège, Luik, Belgium.

Access to collections and data is one of the most fundamental starting point for every humanities researcher. On the 25th of May of 2018 access to information has changed dramatically in the European Union with the coming of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Before that date personal privacy and data protection were legislated and enforced through a patchwork of individual member state laws and independent supervisors. These laws have been harmonized and are replaced by one set of data protection rules for all organisations operating in the EU, wherever they are based. This poster is about the GDPR and access to collections and data.
