On October 25th, Dr. Laura A. Millar delivered a talk entitled "Truth, Lies, and Evidence: The Role of the Archivist in an Information Age". The talk was held as a hybrid event with over 100 attendees joining by Zoom and a dozen more attending in person at the University of Manitoba Archives and Special Collections. Dr. Millar spoke on archivists' roles in the modern era and how archivists could define these roles going forward. Afterwards, Dr. Millar responded to several questions and comments from the attendees.
