Programme profile

The degree programme provides a highly specialised technical training in management and conservation of the book and document cultural heritage and of public and private document collections. As well as ensuring a solid knowledge of history, law and informatics concerning the handling and communicating of descriptive information, it provides the organizational techniques by which to design and manage complex information systems and direct institutions intended to preserve past books and documents. In its specific sectors (archive, book and document conservation) the training takes stock of current national and international research at the cutting edge of this academic subject. The programme contributes as a whole to the mastery of one EU language other than Italian, with specific reference to technical vocabulary.

The three learning areas are: 1. Specialist scientific know-how; 2. Legal and managerial methodology; 3. History of the book and document heritage.
