Public History e Metadata

The dematerialisation of information and the development of Information Systems combined with the use of flexible metadata standards enable a new accessibility for the sources. Matching this new accessibility with the bottom-up historiographic production promoted by Public History enables the development of new forms of history teaching and the generation of information objects through participatory metadata creation with a community of reference. Through the analysis of three different cases, this article brings out the importance of metadata for the organisation, archiving and use of historical sources in a Public History perspective.
