This is the previous step to the digitization of these collections

The Municipal Archive undertakes the cataloging of twenty local and regional press titles from recent decades

The staff of the Municipal Archive of Benidorm has undertaken the cataloguing of around twenty headlines from the local and regional press of the last decades. The councillor for Historical and Cultural Heritage, Ana Pellicer, stated that "for several months, the copies of each of these publications have been identified, described and inventoried one by one."

Pellicer has pointed out that "it is a laborious process, especially if we take into account that there are more than 16,000 copies to be catalogued and that it is before the digitization of these collections, which we will address later." "The priority now is to reference all those copies so that anyone can physically consult them in the Archive."

The councillor stressed that "the press is one of the documentary sources that researchers or anyone interested in learning about aspects of a specific historical period use most frequently since it provides a lot of information." In this specific case, "we are talking about copies published in recent decades and that, therefore, testifies to the most recent history of Benidorm and the Marina Baixa region".

Pellicer explained that "with the cataloguing of the enormous newspaper library of our Archive, we expand the documentary funds made available to the public and we cover a very important time frame for the development of the city". Likewise, the mayor has recalled that these funds are added to other press resources already available and that can be consulted on the municipal website, such as the Municipal Bulletin of the Villa published between 1959 and 1961 or the copies of the Virgen del Sufragio Magazine that are published in 1929 and 1930”.

As the councillor has pointed out, "the intention in the future is to digitize all that newspaper library that is now being catalogued, thus favouring its online consultation of the new and exclusive portal of the Municipal Archive that we hope will be operational in the coming months." A portal to which, as soon as it is launched, the latest digitized documentation will be incorporated: the 29-minute books of the Plenary Session between the years 1849 and 1973 and 14 of the Permanent Municipal Commission from the period 1924-1972.

Regarding this documentation, Pellicer has reported that a subsidy of 3,726.80 euros has been granted to  Benidorm City Council within the call for the digitization and restoration of archive documentation with an age of 50 years or more. This subsidy, with which "the digitization that has been made of these documentation books will be paid for", "comes to recognize the work that is being carried out from the Archive and allows us to tackle new projects".
