ARCHIVISTICS

Archives and information management

The fourth residency period of 2019, which is going to take place at Faber between 20 and 30 April, is dedicated to archives and information management. We would like professionals from these fields to get together at the residency and work on issues, such as involvement of document management in the transparency of governments, new presence at public archives, the management of big data or quality data, the implications of blockchain in document authenticity, and everything that shows an innovative professional activity and that can face problems of the digital present and future with full guarantees.

We would like to debate the role of archives in our society, as an element of interaction and relationship with knowledge, but also as a form of relationship between authorities and citizens that want to be responsible for the information they generate.

These and other topics that may be related (project work, diverse research, structure and formative typology, analysis of potential audiences or implementation of a document management system) are some of the lines of work that will be followed at Faber during this period.

So, we open a call for candidates who would like to apply for one of the Faber scholarships. They are open to all types of professionals working in the fields of archival science, document management, information governance and the enhancement of documentary heritage. We are looking for professionals who have reflected on archives, their problems and opportunities.

Faber's goal is to promote exchange between residents and the educational community that welcomes them in Olot,  La Garrotxa, or in Catalonia. This call is made in collaboration with the Associaciones de Archiveros y Gestores Documentales de Cataluña (Associations of Archivists and Documentary Managers of Catalonia) and is a pre-conference for the Archivistics Congress that is going to take place in Sant Feliu de Guíxols.
