Dr. Luciana Duranti, Chair and Professor, Archival Studies; School
of Library, Archival, and Information Studies, The University of
British Columbia, The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.

It is generally assumed that an original document is more
trustworthy than a draft or a copy, simply because it presents all
the possible features that allow for an assessment of its
reliability, accuracy and authenticity.  However, originality has no
relationship with trustworthiness.  Rather, it is one of three
possible statuses of transmission of a document, that is, it relates
to its degree of perfection.

Come hear Dr. Duranti discuss the concept of copy, the purposes of
copies, and their use, and identify the issues presented by the
proliferation of copies in the digital environment, start a
discussion and provide suggestions on how to address them or avoid
them altogether.
