Hello everyone! Today I continue sharing stories about the current state of important regional archives in Venezuela. This last podcast episode is about the Acervo Histórico del Zulia, the most important local repository of historical knowledge in this oil-rich province. I had the chance to interview Dervi Vílchez, who has years of experience working at that institution and who will walk us through the main challenges and needs the Acervo confronts but also the opportunities it offers to researchers, scholars and community members. Join me and my team at New Books Network en español podcast channel for a new interview and stay tuned for more!
