    Exposició virtual "Malheridos. La huella del tiempo en las bibliotecas REBIUN"

    The virtual exhibition "Malheridos. La huella del tiempo en las bibliotecas REBIUN" is part of the initiative of the Rebiun Bibliographic Heritage Group to publicise and disseminate the heritage collections of the libraries that are part of the Network.  

     

    On this occasion, the exhibition does not focus on one type of document or its content, but rather takes a tour through the fragile and tortuous journey of books as a documentary support over time.

     

    Censorship, natural disasters, malpractice and violence are the four sections that make up the structure of the exhibition, with examples of works in which it is possible to see the mark left by the different causes affecting them and the vicissitudes they have had to endure.

     

    The Historical Library of the University of Valencia contributes three documents to this exhibition:

    This joint virtual exhibition has been held to coincide with the 3rd Conference on Bibliographic Heritage Management hosted by the University of Valencia. In addition, other local exhibitions have been organised with the same common thread:

    Inauguration of the exhibition "Malferits. The footprint of time in libraries REBIUN"

    On Thursday, May 19 at 11 am, the exhibition '' Malheridos. The footprint of time in the REBIUN libraries”, a project organized by the Vicerectorat d’Investigació and the Biblioteca Històrica that invites us to delve into the universe of books and learn about the various factors that threaten their survival and conservation.

    The exhibition is held within the framework of the III Conference on Bibliographic Heritage Management organized by the REBIUN Bibliographic Heritage Working Group and the Biblioteca Històrica, which, on this occasion and on May 26 and 27, have their headquarters in the Botanical Garden.

    The exhibition, curated by the restorers of the Servei de Biblioteques i documentació of the Universitat de València, Susana González Martínez and Mónica Pintado Antúnez, through a selection of more than fifty documents, including seven manuscripts and five incunabula, exhibit the main causes capable of altering its integrity, as is the case of the merciless action of censorship; the devastation caused by catastrophes; the effects derived from the degradation of the materials that make them up; the effect of biological agents, capable of producing its destruction; or the factor that most affects bibliographic and documentary heritage, the human factor.

    The exhibition can be visited in the Sala Duc de Calàbria of the Biblioteca Històrica, in the La Nau Centre Cultural de la Universitat de València, until September 4, 2022.
