Crónica dunha custodia

The University Historical Archive of Santiago, through the exhibition entitled "Crónica dunha custodia" (Chronicle of a custody), wants to show its own extensive history, so linked to that of the University from which emanates the rich documentary heritage it houses, manages and preserves.  

By means of the chronological tour that is proposed based on the main historical milestones that had an impact, in one way or another, on its genesis and evolution, it also aims to show the process of shaping its documentary corpus over time.  

To illustrate these facts, it will show the most representative documentation, with historical value or that which provides curious or unknown information, as well as exhibiting a selection of its documentary gems which, for the first time, will be taken out of the archive's deposits so that they can be seen by the public.

Finally, the human dimension of this custody will also be present, that is, the documentation relating to those people linked to or responsible for the archive at different times, also reflecting the evolution of the figure of the archivist until its recognition as a profession with the creation of the speciality in the mid-19th century.
