Heritage library collections: new perspectives and approaches

This event was organised by the Library of CAM within the project “Organisation, treatment and dissemination of the Library of José Mattoso”, started in October 2010, funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology, the Inalentejo Programme (2007-2013) and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. This event also relied on the collaboration of the Institute of Medieval Studies of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the New University of Lisbon, of the Centre for Archaeological Studies at the Universities of Coimbra and Porto, of the Municipality of Mértola and of the Cultural and Recreational Association of Tondela .

The event benefited from the contribution of Portuguese experts from key information and documentation services in the field of bibliographic treatment and promotion and dissemination of heritage collections. About a hundred participants attended the event, including, among others, information professionals, students and teachers in the field of Information and Documentation Sciences (CID), and researchers.

The meeting had the following objectives: to foster discussion and reflection on issues pertaining to heritage collections; to promote contact between institutions with heritage collections, and to boost research in the field of CID in Portugal, in general, and particularly of heritage collections.

This meeting also served the purpose of extending a heartfelt tribute to José Mattoso, who donated his personal library and archive to CAM in 1997.
