MAKINO, Miyoko; SILVA, Shirley Ribeiro da; LIMA, Solange Ferraz de and CARVALHO, Vânia Carneiro de. The department of textual and iconographical documentation of Museu Paulista. An. mus. paul. [online]. 2003, vol.10-11, n.1, pp.259-304. ISSN 0101-4714. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-47142003000100014.
The essay compares the curatorship's works realized during the decade of 1990 by the actual Department of Textual and Iconographical Documentation of Museu Paulista, responsible for the MP Fund / Permanent File (Fundo MP/Arquivo Permanente), hundreds of collections and textual funds and 50.000 iconography pieces, great part of which are gathered in photographic collections. It shows how the documentation work extrapolates the limits of SVDHICO in order to integrate itself with the group activities of the museum and with other research groups. It also points towards new work methodologies which allow to perform the curatorship in an integrated way with the interdisciplinary research and the culture diffusion.
