Abstract

Temptation in the Archives is a collection of essays by Lisa Jardine, that takes readers on a journey through the Dutch Golden Age. Through the study of such key figures as Sir Constantjin Huygens, a Dutch polymath and diplomat, we begin to see the Anglo-Dutch cultural connections that formed during this period against the backdrop of unfolding political events in England. Temptation in the Archives paints a picture of a unique relationship between the Netherlands and England in the 17th century forged through a shared experience – and reveals the lessons we can learn from it today.

Abstract

Esta obra es resultado de las jornadas sobre Archivos e Historia de las Universidades organizadas en 2002 por el Instituto Antonio de Nebrija de la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, en la que se dieron cita representantes de los distintos colectivos profesionales que centran sus actividades en el ámbito de los archivos universitarios y de las historia de las universidades. Se trata de dos grupos profesionales: archiveros e investigadores, reunidos por primera vez para establecer las líneas respectivas de acción y el ámbito científico de confluencia. En el texto se trata con carácter novedoso el estado de la gestión de los documentos, en especial de las universidades de reciente factura, lo que constituye la base para lo que en la actualidad y en el futuro serán las fuentes para el estudio de las universidades contemporáneas. También se analizan las últimas tendencias en la materia y de manera señalada cabe reseñar la presentación de los proyectos llevados a cabo por la Conferencia de Archiveros de Universidades orientados al servicio de los investigadores, y el análisis sobre el derecho de acceso y las implicaciones legales que comporta el uso de documentos contemporáneos. Todo ello, caracterizado por la relevancia científica, el relieve internacional y la acreditada experiencia profesional de los ponentes, que ofrecen lo mejor de su conocimiento y que, en buena medida, queda reflejado en estas páginas.

Abstract

Het Internationaal Instituut voor Sociale Geschiedenis (IISG) is een van de meest vooraanstaande onderzoeksinstituten ter wereld op het terrein van de sociale geschiedenis, zowel in het wetenschappelijk onderzoek als in het verzamelen en beheren van een unieke internationale collectie archieven. Dit boek onderzoekt de geschiedenis van het Instituut van 1935 tot 1989. Centraal staat de ontwikkeling van het Instituut in de richting van een steeds sterkere professionalisering. Een ontwikkeling in wisselwerking met een driehoek van externe invloeden: de politieke en maatschappelijke context; de ontwikkeling van sociale geschiedenis als academische discipline; en het institutionele en bestuurlijke kader. Het is het verhaal van betrokken historici en activisten, die het erfgoed van en uit de arbeidersbeweging en andere emancipatiebewegingen wilden veiligstellen en voor onderzoek beschikbaar maken. Het boek neemt de lezer mee naar spectaculaire reddingsacties van archieven en bibliotheken die bedreigd waren door de opkomst van Hitler, de ineenstorting van het IISG tijdens de bezetting, en de wonderbaarlijke terugkeer van de meeste collecties na de oorlog. Tijdens de wederopbouw volgde een zoektocht naar een plaats in de academische infrastructuur. Intern raakte het Instituut ontregeld tijdens de roerige jaren zestig en zeventig. In de jaren tachtig vond het IISG de weg naar verdere professionalisering zonder zijn oorspronkelijke bestaansrecht en drijfveren uit het oog te verliezen.

Abstract

"Much of worldâ&#128;&#153;s documentary heritage rests in vulnerable, little-known and often inaccessible archives. Many of these archives preserve information that may cast new light on historical phenomena and lead to their reinterpretation. But such rich collections are often at risk of being lost before the history they capture is recorded. This volume celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Endangered Archives Programme at the British Library, established to document and publish online formerly inaccessible and neglected archives from across the globe. From Dust to Digital showcases the historical significance of the collections identified, catalogued and digitised through the Programme, bringing together articles on 19 of the 244 projects supported since its inception. These contributions demonstrate the range of materials documented â&#128;&#148; including rock inscriptions, manuscripts, archival records, newspapers, photographs and sound archives â&#128;&#148; and the wide geographical scope of the Programme. Many of the documents are published here for the first time, illustrating the potential these collections have to further our understanding of history."
