Zuiveringscommissie Hilversum

Het Streekarchief Gooi en Vechtstreek heeft het archief van de Zuiveringscommissie Hilversum (1945-1946) verworven. Deze commissie was ingesteld om zuiveringsmaatregelen te treffen tegen ambtenaren van de gemeente Hilversum die tijdens de oorlog de 'Nederlandse zaak' schade hadden berokkend.
Het archief is beperkt openbaar vanwege de voor de privacy van nog levende personen gevoelige informatie. Dit betekent dat de stukken alleen te raadplegen zijn na ondertekening van een verklaring ter bescherming van de persoonlijke levenssfeer en dat gegevens over nog levende personen uit dit archief niet met naam en toenaam gepubliceerd mogen worden.

FUMAGABA project

The European Library’s FUMAGABA (2008-2009) project aims to integrate the collections of the national libraries of Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Ukraine, Moldova, Albania, Georgia, Armenia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Azerbaijan with the help of the financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. The project is currently coming to a very successful conclusion, with nearly 18 collections already integrated. The European Library interface has also added 7 languages to its front end.

The FUMAGABA project will end this summer when the national libraries involved will become active members of The European Library network. These partners will soon be promoting The European Library through a short video in their native language, marking their membership entry with an innovative promotional tool.

Formation of a foundation for investigative reporting

A group of journalists in Britain decided to announce the formation of a Foundation for Investigative Reporting to look at what practical steps can be taken, both to experiment with new means of funding essential investigations and to inspire a new generation of reporters. The Foundation will act as an incubator for new ways of conducting journalism and for new ideas of how to finance this kind of reporting.

The Department of State USA is pleased to announce the official unveiling of the Office of the Historian’s new website: www.history.state.gov.

The new website boasts greater accessibility and searching within the Foreign Relations of the United States documentary series. It currently offers both textual and facsimile copies of Foreign Relations volumes from the Kennedy Administration through the Nixon-Ford administration. The Office plans to continue to digitize older volumes and eventually house all of the Foreign Relations volumes on its website. The website also contains updated sections on the history of the Department of State, biographies of notable diplomats, and an in-depth timeline of United States diplomatic milestones. The Office’s educational curriculum guides are also downloadable from the website. The Office hopes that through its enhanced presentation and organization, the new website will become the preeminent online resource for U.S. diplomatic history.

Journalistentijdschriften 1896-1950

Bericht van de KB website:

Journalistentijdschriften

Metamorfoze heeft eveneens subsidie toegekend aan het Persmuseum in Amsterdam voor de conservering en digitalisering van journalistentijdschriften uit de periode 1896-1950. In het begin van de twintigste eeuw professionaliseerde de journalistiek zich, met als gevolg het verschijnen van diverse vaktijdschriften. Deze periodieken geven inzicht in de ontwikkeling van de journalistiek en leveren veel informatie over afzonderlijke kranten- en tijdschrifttitels, grote uitgeverijen en individuele journalisten. In 1950 zijn de diverse tijdschriften samengegaan in het nog altijd bestaande De Journalist.
