A holiday, lovely weather and enthusiastic citizens: that’s all it takes to organize a national feast. The AMFLB shows us how Brussels celebrates its maypole, in August 1930 no less.
Step by step, we are opening up the Flemish archive to the public. Our first public collection, ‘News from the Great War’, is the biggest online database of press material from the First World War. Browse through war newspapers, trench papers and even censored press.
An image says more than a thousand words. Through our platform ‘the Archive for Education’ teachers can find audiovisual classroom material in one place. It has never been so fun and easy to enrich your lessons with image and sound. Exclusively accessible to teachers and trainee teachers.
In 2019 we’ll start digitising about 8000 DV-cassettes. Although, digitising does not seem to cover it. Read all about carriers with a digital signal, the preparation for their sustainable preservation and our intern Gaël.
