We asked Senior Paper Conservator, Kathy Ludwig, about the most interesting project she’s worked on. The most intrinsically valuable document she has treated at the National Archives is the Monroe Doctrine. The document is the Senate version the 36-page text of President James Monroe’s seventh annual Message to Congress on December 2, 1823. The Monroe Doctrine, hand-written by an administrative assistant and signed by the President, was a defining moment in American foreign policy. We’ll explore its conservation treatment in the next few posts.
Modelo del Ciclo Vital de la Preservación digital diseñado por la Biblioteca del Congreso de los Estados Unidos de América.
The LOC digital preservation blog has a post about digital preservation lifecycle models. This one we learned about in my digital preservation class, so it’s somewhat comprehensible. In the comments someone describes the CASPAR model as “brain-scrambling” and I certainly agree.
Los Archivos en el Arte:
"El Rey Creso" de Claude Vingon (1629).
Muestra de cómo los documentos están presentes siempre en las decisiones de la realeza en el Antiguo Régimen.
"La carta" de Delphin Enjolras (siglo XIX). Otra obra de arte que refleja la existencia de documentos efímeros (como puede ser una carta de amor).

Estoy descubriendo una nueva de ver arte (#artchivos).
Nick Gentry is a British artist from London. Much of his artistic output has been generated with the use of contributed artefacts and materials. He states that through this process “contributor, artist and viewer come closer together”. His art is influenced by the development of consumerism, technology, identity and cyberculture in society, with a distinctive focus on obsolete media. He is best known for his floppy disk paintings and film negative artworks, placing an emphasis on recycling obsolete media and the reuse of personal objects as a central theme. Such artistic works of social commentary have been featured in galleries in the UK, USA and in cities throughout the world. His work has been exhibited alongside established street artists and as such has been linked to the urban art scene in London.
