A case report on the role of the documentalist in an audiovisual platform : RelTV

This paper reports on three projects completed by a documentalist for the new audiovisual platform RelTV: a relational database, a digital preservation plan and an example of a journalistic-documental product in the form of an interactive map of videos. The paper reports on how the three projects were designed and developed and then analyzes the implications and viability of such initiatives, reflecting on the professional contribution that documentalists can make in this field.
