Recently Launched: Med-Mem Online Archive of Mediterranean Video, 4000 Digitized Items Available

“Sharing our Mediterranean Audiovisual Heritage (Med-Mem)” – co-funded by the European Union as part of the Euromed Heritage IV programme – offers the general public the largest online video archive library devoted to the historic, cultural and tourism heritage of the Mediterranean, free of charge. The TV and radio archives, set into their historic and cultural context, are accompanied by a trilingual documentary note (in French, English and Arabic).

“Med-Mem offers the general public, and students and teachers in particular, a trilingual site enriched by the insights and varying viewpoints of more than 40 teachers and researchers specialising in the Mediterranean.”

Med-Mem forms part of a collaborative partnership which is open to all Mediterranean audiovisual archives. The sharing of documentary and technical tools, audiovisual heritage conservation policies, and best legal practices between television corporation managers forms an integral part of the project.
