Prof. Havi Dreifuss, a historian of the Holocaust at Tel-Aviv University, affiliated with Yad Vashem, discusses the accessibility of information and knowledge in her podcast.  She highlights the pros of digital research, the diversity and an amount of quality online material that one can access with the click of the button on their computer. She argues whether the digital reality is sufficient enough for the academia, although it gives a lot of opportunities to teach students and meet excellent scholars from the parts of the world she would never expected.

If you want to learn more about the issue of information accessibility and its credibility in the digital research era and to learn about the “personality” of the stationary archive, listen to Prof. Havi Dreifuss’ podcast!
