Historical Archives' Digitization Project - Second Phase
A hectic year so far what with the replacement of our streaming server, the upgrading of our media player and the improvements to the embed codes, to mention but the most relevant. We have also continued to add new content to our digital fonds regularly, as you may have noticed if you are one of the thousands of returning visitors we welcome every month. An important segment of the new additions is a second batch of films from our historical archives digitized by INA, the Institut national de l'audiovisuel of France. This second phase emphasizes the social sciences, heritage and UNESCO history. We hope you'll find this content as interesting and exciting as our archivists did when making the selection for digitization!
INA-UNESCO Collection (Vol.1)
L'Institut national de l'audiovisuel, INA (France), numérisa il y a peu plusieurs dizaines d'éléments audiovisuels des fonds de l'UNESCO. Pendant cette année 2015, environ quatre-vingts éléments seront numérisés grâce à ce partenariat et viendront enrichir celle que nous appelons désormais la "Collection INA-UNESCO": une collection riche en histoire que nous vous invitons vivement à découvrir.
