Un stage dans les archives du Mundaneum !

Découvrez l'expérience récente d'une stagiaire au Mundaneum. Larissa Folie, étudiante en bibliothéconomie et documentation à Henallux, a rejoint pendant quelques semaines l'équipe du centre d'archives.
The Mundaneum, archives centre of fame

The Mundaneum archive centre contains some 6 kilometres of documents. Apart from the personal documents of the founders of the Mundaneum, Paul Otlet and Henri La Fontaine, and the collections of newspapers, posters, postcards, glass plates and small documents that they or their successors gathered, the Mundaneum preserves archives relative to three main themes: pacifism, anarchism and feminism.

The aim of the Mundaneum consists in safeguarding and preserving these documents and to valorise them through the means of exhibitions, publications and events such as colloquiums and conferences.
