Event description

Description

Please join ARMA Vancouver as we bring together a bright group of UBC Archival researchers whose research extends beyond records management to the "disruptive" technology of blockchain and distributed ledger systems. Don't understand the connection? This event on January 23 promises to explain how Blockchain technology is fundamentally a recordkeeping technology and is already dramatically changing the way recordkeeping is done even in Vancouver and around the world.

See below for more information on our speakers.

Alysha Joo (BA, Hons. Asian Area Studies, the University of British Columbia) recently completed her MAS & MLIS at the University of British Columbia's iSchool (School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies) and has been a Graduate Research Assistant at Blockchain@UBC. She will be presenting on a case study, which explores the application of Blockchain technology to land registration in British Columbia, as well as assessing the trustworthiness of blockchain recordkeeping solutions from the lens of archival principles.

Danielle Batista, B.A.R.M., M.I.S., is a Ph.D. student at the University of British Columbia iSchool (School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies). Her research focuses on the study of smart contracts as archival records. She will present a study case of an application of blockchain technology used for the land title register in Brazil.

Darra Hofman, J.D., M.S.L.S., is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of British Columbia iSchool (School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies). Her research focuses on the intersection between records, technology, and human rights, with a special focus on blockchain technology and privacy. She will give an introduction to blockchain technology: what it is, how it works, and what it means for records and records managers. She will then discuss the specific application of blockchain technology to health records.
