  • To provide knowledge about the morphology and functioning of the materials used in the determination of photographic and audiovisual information in order to contribute to a better preservation of documents.
  • To make aware of the vulnerability of this heritage conditioned by the rapid obsolescence and degradation of the physical media.
  • To contribute to celebrate the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (October 27) and the International Archives Day (June 9).
  • To promote the awareness and provide tools for the work of archivists in the field of photographic and audiovisual documentation.
