The Servei d'Arxius de Ciència: Scientific Archives in Catalonia
International Scientific Archives Conference (CASE/IHHPS), Edinburgh, April 2003
What is the Servei d’Arxius de Ciència? A Commission including historians of science, archivists and scientists runs the Servei. Funds come mostly from the Institut d’Estudis Catalans, a learned society that promotes Catalan culture, which approved a three-year budget to get the project running; the Servei is also supported by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, which together with the Institut provide administrative facilities and secretarial help. The Servei is thus a virtual unit, with no premises of its own, which takes advantage of the Catalan archival system and the infraestructure of the promoting institutions.
