In order to do this, in addition to the central themes of research and transcription of the documents in the Archives, it is also important to develop ways to manage and communicate the issues related to the Archives so that we can realistically guarantee a future for this documentary history. So it is necessary to make more people aware of the existence of the archives and help them to appreciate what has been produced from it, and the context it applies to, and then to demonstrate the different ways it can be used. This should be done without sacrificing scientific rigor and at the same time moving beyond its inherent technical rigidity. It is imperative to translate this vision into models of communication and initiatives that bring citizens closer to ‘their’ archives.
In this context, defining a model of management means building a modern cultural service where 80 square kilometers of well-conserved and inventoried paper can be transformed into documentation with precious information, enabling us to tell the stories which even non-specialists can enjoy.
