Abstract

Documentando la Historia Política Legislativa Chilena: Ciudadanía involucrada con sus raíces a través de Internet

The use of web platform and social media has an unexpected scope, since millions of users generate knowledge which is not available in libraries or web browsers, as there is information that refers exclusively to family stories or geographic areas far from the capital (in the context of each country), which is not shared because of private sphere or ignorance. Since 2011, the Library of the National Congress of Chile has received biographical background, documents and pictures that users send by filling in an electronic form through the web section Documenting the Political History from the portal Legislative Political History (http://historiapolitica.bcn.cl), being a space to interact with relatives of former members of Congress (most of them from provinces and with local political leadership in the XIX and XX centuries), researchers, students, and others, who contribute to the reconstruction of unknown events in the history that provide the shaping of a political, parliamentary, and legislative identity about the Chilean society. Challenge to discuss is the corroboration of information that lands through these users. Through this platform a link is attempted to generate with users who have exclusive information and get their confidence using a quick step that not only is carried out digitally, but also in others ways of communication according to their age group, by telephone or physical presence due to older adults.
