Archivists are frequently faced with ethical decisions such as negotiating with donors, processing collections, digitizing materials for the internet, or working with colleagues. The SAA Code of Ethics provides a framework for archivist's behavior. Often, though, the ethics code seems theoretical and abstract and can be difficult to implement in real world situations. Pressures may come from donors, supervisors, co-workers, and/or colleagues that cause an archivist to wonder how to navigate competing interests and still remain true to archival ethics.
