The speakers highlight transparency and trust in relation to records of people institutionalised as children. Since 2011, Find & Connect (www.findandconnect.gov.au) has provided Australian Care Leavers with information about their childhoods. In this session, members of the website team reflect on processes of building and maintaining trust with diverse stakeholders and discuss such challenges as dealing with contested histories, communicating with diverse audiences, and promoting transparency in archival description and online content development.
