The SAC > International scope

Cooperation with countries with a long scientific tradition that have units or services with similar characteristics has been one of the driving forces for setting up the SAC. International exchange and collaboration have played a major role in the Service since it was created.

A first, basic step towards integration with other European institutions took place in 2001, when two of the promoters of the SAC, Xavier Roqué and Antoni Borfo, joined CASE (Cooperation on Archives of Science in Europe) – a group of historians, scientists and archivists working for the promotion and development of contemporary science archives. The members of the group exchange information and experiences on archival projects related to specific institutions, regions, nations or disciplines, including tools for description. The group also works together with similar initiatives around the world, such as the International Catalog of Sources of the Centre for History of Physics and Allied Sciences, at the American Institute of Physics; and the World History of Science Online project (WHSO), promoted by the History of Science and Technology Division of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science (IUHPS), coordinated by the University of Melbourne.
