Abstract

Galapagos inside an archive — for the community

The paper presents the work of the Charles Darwin Foundation's library and archive at the Galapagos Islands (Ecuador), the oldest and only active library in the archipelago. The archive holds an important collection of historical documents, which includes both an account of the scientific activity in the islands and an important part of the social memory of the local community during the last six decades. In order to connect people with that particular set of knowledge, the CDF's library and archive are developing a number of activities that are briefly described in these pages.
