Alexandria (Egypt), October 12th –14th, 2009

The training on indexation, that will take place from 12th to 14th October 2009 at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, will be an opportunity for about twenty archivists from both partner and associate archive-holder organizations to exchange and adopt mutual indexation practices.

From last March , the Med-Mem partners and associates have identified and selected audiovisual documents dealing with six macro themes of the project – Arts and Culture, History and Civilizations, Societies and Lifestyles, Landscape and Environment, Tourism - within their archives. The processing of those documents will allow to offer an image as complete as possible of the Euro-Mediterranean cultural patrimony.
After the collection of these data – more than a 100 documents per archives’ holder – a survey has been made in order to optimize the harmonisation of the methods of selection of the documents between the different partners.

The conclusions of this survey have in particular allowed to design the contents of the training « Indexing for Med-Mem » that will be held at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in October 2009.
The first session of this training that will gather both documentary and editorial components will be devoted to a meeting between the archives’ professionals and researchers specialized in the tackled issues. The other sessions will be made of theoretical contents and of practical applications on documents’ indexation.

Looking forward to going to Alexandria, the partner broadcasters are working on the settlement of their digitization stations that they received very recently, following the « Digitization » training seminar that took place on July 21st at the RAI headquarters in Turin.
