L’ Associazione Italiana di Public History e l’Università degli Studi di Salerno hanno stipulato una convenzione per l’implementazione di un archivio aperto dedicato agli studi di public history. È denominato ELPHi (Electronic Library of Public History) ed è finalizzato a raccogliere dati bibliografici, a conservare ed esporre documenti inediti o anche già pubblicati in altre sedi, digitali nativi o digitalizzati: monografie, articoli in riviste, contributi apparsi in miscellanee di studi o atti di convegni, capitoli di libri, recensioni o rassegne di dati bibliografici, contenuti audio o video, manifesti, locandine, fotografie, prodotti grafici; e qualsiasi altro contenuto o risorsa purché ritenuti coerenti con le linee di indirizzo del progetto.

Il Centro Bibliotecario di Ateneo dell’Università di Salerno cura la gestione tecnica del progetto, inclusi l’indicizzazione, l’inserimento dei metadati descrittivi e l’attribuzione del DOI (Digital Object Identifier). L’archiviazione digitale è eseguita con la licenza CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, che consente ad altri di condividere il lavoro, scaricare, riutilizzare, ristampare, distribuire e/o copiare la versione finale dei documenti.

L’iniziativa è rivolta a tutti gli studiosi interessati a un’ampia diffusione su strumenti telematici degli esiti della propria ricerca. Al riguardo si sottolinea che il portale EleA, reso disponibile dall’ateneo salernitano, è presente sulle maggiori piattaforme europee di open access e aderisce al progetto nazionale Magazzini digitali della Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze per la conservazione permanente dei documenti elettronici pubblicati in Italia e diffusi tramite reti informatiche.

Tutti coloro che fossero interessati alla pubblicazione di documenti e risorse informative nel database ELPHi potranno inviarli in formato bibliografico o in pdf in caso di testi integrali, all’indirizzo e-l-p-hi@googlegroups.com . Ogni singola proposta di testi integrali, ovvero non limitata soltanto al dato bibliografico, dovrà essere corredata da una dichiarazione di responsabilità). Il comitato scientifico si riserva di non pubblicare i contributi ritenuti non coerenti con le finalità scientifiche del progetto o non provvisti di liberatoria.

>>> Avvertenza: i contenuti del database sono di norma presentati in full text (pdf o rinvio all’URI originario); laddove siano tutelati da copyright o diritto d’autore, sono soltanto segnalati da citazione bibliografica e abstract.

The Italian Association of Public History (AIPH) and the University of Salerno have entered into an agreement for the implementation of an open archive dedicated to public history studies. ELPHi (Electronic Library of Public History) is aimed at collecting bibliographical data and at storing, and exhibiting documents: monographs, journals’ articles, contributions that have appeared in studies’ miscellaneous or conference proceedings, book chapters, book reviews or bibliographies, audio or video content, posters, playbills, photographs, graphic products, and any other content or resource as long as it is considered consistent with the guidelines of the project, unpublished documents or even already published in other locations, digital native or digitized.

The University Library Centre of the University of Salerno takes care of the technical management of the project, including indexing, insertion of descriptive metadata, and attribution of the DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Digital archiving will be performed under the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license, which allows others to share works, download, reuse, reprint, distribute and/or copy the final version of documents.

The initiative is aimed at all scholars interested in the wide dissemination of the results of their research through telematic tools. In this regard, it should be noted that the EleA portal, made available by the University of Salerno, is present on the major European open-access platforms and adheres to the national Digital Warehouses (Magazzini Digitali) project for the permanent conservation of electronic documents published in Italy and disseminated via computer networks.

All those interested in publishing documents and information resources in the ELPHi database can send them as bibliographical records or, in pdf format for full-text documents to e-l-p-hi@googlegroups.com . Each individual full-text proposal, i.e. not limited only to bibliographic data, must be accompanied by a declaration of responsibility .
