Abstract

Cultural institutions such as libraries and archives play an important role in the preservation of, and access to, cultural heritage. The digitization of documents of an historical educational nature is essential to ensure the preservation of the collective memory of a certain generation of schoolchildren, and its use for educational purposes allows a collective identity to be re-established, suitable for use on increasingly large subject groups. This article examines the benefits of digitizing a specific type of material related to school culture, exercise books, which have played a significant role in the history of the teaching and learning processes. It examines issues related to the conservation of these items and access to them, given their cultural heritage and their impact on the preservation and upkeep of the history of educational institutions. The main aspects and stages of the CoDiSV project, which aims to build a digital library of cultural assets, and educational and historical ones in particular, will then be discussed.
